Posting/Embedding Google Street View images
« on: April 19, 2018, 02:54:46 AM »


How do I post/embed a Google Street View image on the Forum? Using the Google Maps embed a map function, I'm able to copy and paste code such as:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!4v1524120398534!6m8!1m7!1sOvHOa99qmOv9bjALK38S9g!2m2!1d39.60587540819751!2d-86.15865693850336!3f301.7122472630216!4f-7.424413896826437!5f0.7820865974627469" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

But, so far, I'm unable to get an image produced using various Forum functions. So what do I need to do to embed an image, such as the above?

Thanks.

There probably is a way to directly embed the actual GMSV image in a post on here, but if not, and if all else fails, I would recommend taking a picture of the image with your phone (or if looking at it on your phone, take a screenshot, which would have even better quality). For example, from time to time when participating in the "Daily Picture Challenge" thread, I have taken a picture of the GMSV on my computer screen with my phone, then uploaded those photos to Flickr, then embedded them in my post from there. I couldn't tell you how to directly embed it, though.

Code: [Select]
[img]http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/streetview?size=600x300&location=46.414382,10.013988&heading=151.78&pitch=10&fov=60[/img]
Location: Latitude, longitude (longitude will usually be negative)
Heading: The direction you're facing, from 0 to 360
Pitch: Looking down or up, from -90 to 90
FOV: Hοw much of the photo you can see: you can see a lot with a higher number, and it's more zoomed in with a lower number

EDITED September 1: It must be http. https no longer works.

Convince the forum operators to allow iframe embedding. My understanding is that it can be done, but they prohibit it here.
