I selected Skyline Apartments on one of the images, and used the copy feature to distribute the location to all nodes. I then checked each of the nodes to ensure that they were all associated with Skyline Apartments. When I export them to google Maps, 2 of the images are merely associated as "Northside" (the general area that Skyline Apts are in), and, so, they are also not linked in the tour.

Here is a link to my submissions to Google Maps... the top two should be Skyline Apartments and Northside.

HI,
In the p2vr file you have 5 input images and in your link to your Street View there are 5 images in the Skyline Apartments.
I do see two marked with Northside but as your project has 5 images and the Account has 5 images I can't see much wrong.
That said I'm not seeing any hotspot links in the last two nodes?
Regards,
Hopki

Right, the problem isn't that the images aren't getting uploaded, it's that they're not all being tagged with the business... The two that show as Northside were supposed to be Skyline as well, not Northside, so the hotspot links can't link since they're, for some reason, not getting uploaded as the same place.

To better explain:
This is how it is in pano2vr (ignore the blurriness.. .grabbed my screencap before it fully loaded):

And this is how it ended up in Google Maps:

Tomorrow, I will have to try to manually fix the issues with the Google Maps mobile app (not looking forward to it because it's not so easy to use) so that I can get this to a client.

Thanks!

So, I deleted out all the images on Google Maps through the browser interface, and in the pano2vr file I deleted out the "place" on each individual node, then added it back. I uploaded the project again, and 4 out of 5 show up as "Skyline", and the 5th still uploads as "Northside".

Update:
In the Google Street View app on iPad, I assigned the stray image appropriately to the business. in the positioning, I found that the relational location was still there, but the connection had to be reestablished. Fixed easily enough.

I spoke too soon... even using Google's Street View program to correct the location on the nodes, there are linking problems that I assume are caused by Google trying to automatically link everything that shouldn't be linked, but no way to know if there's any correlation with some unseen data that may be uploaded when sending via pano2vr.

I had also an issue with the the Street View not being associated to the place I assigned it to.
The problem seemd to be that I changed the the "Default View" at the "Viewing Parameters" tab in Pano2Vr
Changed the default view back to 0 and 0 for Tilt and Pan. Tried to upload and it got associated as intended.
So - do not mess with the default view :)

This issue persists. And to address the suggestion by Iveerde: none of the 4 images in this particular tour had its' default view adjusted, yet one image was associated with "northside" and the other three were properly associated with "Chestnut Crossing".

Hi,
To Check that the correct place is being uploaded open a new project and save to a test folder.
Open your Street View account and from the Street View Browser download the image. Then check the Place. Is it correct?
If so then you will need to get onto Google to sort it out as this is done server side.
But this will check if the Place is correct in the image.

After waiting a couple days, it looks like it straightened itself out... apparently it can take some time for the data being uploaded to all register properly. Definitely something on Google's end. Hopki, thank you for your patience while I dealt with this issue.
