Google Maps Street View for Business
360° Photos on Google Maps Street View
Google Maps is one of the smartest and most popular online map services that uses the power of the Google search engine and the Google Earth application to make finding and getting to a destination faster and easier than ever.
Within Google Maps service, Google provides business listings with business name, address, telephone number, photos, website address (if available), business hours, reviews, street view as well as other nearby businesses and points of interest. For instance, when people search "restaurants near me", Google will show the relevant results along with the map of nearby restaurants. Each restaurant showing up on the map is marked with a pin and has its own mini-website linked to the pin.
One of the most important features on Google Maps is Street View where Google allows businesses (that appear on Google Maps) to submit their indoor and outdoor 360° photos. Once submitted and approved by Google, they will automatically create an interactive photo sphere (360° virtual tour) which can be viewed on computers, tablets, smartphones and VR headsets. The 360° virtual tours can also be shared with the entire world through social media or embedded on your own website. When a business submits its indoor 360° photos on Google Maps Street View, people who search for that business location and driving directions can also see the inside 360° views before they show up.
