K’s has an interesting entrance; the shop is on street level, but when parking in the back you must get buzzed in and go down an elevator, or walk around to the front entrance. Now Kay can direct her guests using Street View!

In my last post I shared the custom virtual tour that I built for Irons Brothers Construction. Now let’s take a look at the Google Street View tour built with the same imagery.
So now you are wondering what is the difference right? There are a few interface elements in the Google tour that might detract from the experience you want your visitor to have.
The filmstrip or carousel of images at the bottom of the screen not only shows your images, Google might show your competitor too!
The navigation arrows are sometimes difficult to use. If you don’t know the layout it is very easy to skip over important parts of the tour.
In locations where people are allowed in the tours, we have to blur their faces.
As a Google Trusted photographer I love working with businesses to make beautiful interactive images. It’s even better when we can create a simple but elegant interface to view them in. Here we see the Chown Hardware Google Maps Business View tour enhanced with a basic menu overlay. This menu allows you to navigate right to the area of the tour you want to see. No need to use the navigation native to Google Maps.
