gpan

Node.js module to download hi-res streetview panoramas

Google Panorama Montage

Download high resolution Google Streetview panorama images and stitch them together into a large panorama image

npm install gpan

This application depends on imagemagick and uses the montage binary to create a large image from the separate image files downloaded via google api

This application makes use of an onducumented Google Maps API. While you may access them, there is no guarantee that this API will not change in the future revisions to Google Maps.

var gp = require("gpan")
    , tmpDir = '/path/to/tmp/dir'
 
//all settings are optional and default to the shown values 
gp.init({ zoom_level:0              //panorama zoom level, default 0 
        ,   tiles_prefix:'image_'   //tile image prefix, useful for montage 
        ,   path_to_image:'panos'   //panorama will create this folder and store the panorama in it 
        ,   output_prefix:'output_' //prefix for the panorama image 
        , tmp_dir: 'gpan_tmp'       //temp folder prefix 
        , pub: true                 // path_to_image relative to app root or public folder 
        })
//each setting can be changed after init 
gp.set('zoom_level', 3);
 
//retrieve panorama image for Times Square, New York 
gp.savePanorama('3q57BxQpP8dNzwD0R5PIzg', tmpDir, function(err,path){
    if(err)
        return handleError(err);
    console.log(path); //will return the path where the panorama montage is stored
