Hello,

By following the YouTube videos, I was able to upload a tour into gsv.

My question is, how can I place a link to the interior of a building while viewing the StreetView?

Here is the outside entrance

Thank you.

Hi,
I think the official from Google is you need to take a panorama at least 3 - 5 meters away from a Google Car panorama.
Over time Google will link to it.
I also think you need to have Auto Connect 360 Panoramas selected in the Settings of the mobile App.
But if you do this then Google will then make links you did not in your tour.

But with all this said, I had a tour, that linked after a few days, then it disconnected, then three months later back to being linked then after a month disconnected again and has never linked again.

So as a feature it does not work properly and would not use it.

Hello Hopki,

Thank you hopki but I think I was not clear.

Here is another example, from this view on GSV, if I click on the right entrance of the hotel, it will take me inside of the Hotel.

I want to accomplish to create the link entrance to the inside of the hotel.

Thanks

Hi bkiter,
I understood what you meant, what I was saying this is very hit and miss.
As said, Google says one of your panoramas needs to be at least 3 to 5 meters from the Street View Car.
Then it will link over time.
But it has been my experience that this does not work.

As an example, this tour: https://goo.gl/maps/Y2DDfi1qGYxDJrGc7
The first pano is 2 meters from the Street View Car and will not link.

Here is the Street View Car Panorama so you can see how close it is to the business.

I see! Thanks!

I thought it would be easy to place entrance link of a virtual tour to properties once you place the GPS information.

Weird that GSV does not implement an easier way to do this process.

Sadly not,
If you are a member ask the question on the Local Guides Connect help forum.
I will also post the question later so hopefully one of us will get an answer.
