How to calculate the number of panoramas for a virtual walk in Google Maps?

Google Street View Virtual Walks have certain rules that must be followed in order for the virtual tour to meet Google standards and, above all, be easy to receive for visitors. For street View Trusted sessions, the optimal distance between points is about 2 meters, and for long corridors, large rooms and outdoor photos, 3 to 5 meters. All panoramas must be connected to each other in a natural way, without obstacles such as tables, chairs, elements of décor or exhibitions. For doors, it is recommended to remove about 1-1.5 m in front of and behind the door. A Google Street View virtual tour made in this way provides the best user experience and correctness in the case of verification by Google employees.

During the session of service premises, it is the customer who chooses those rooms to be shown in a virtual walk, it is important to maintain connections between them. You can skip utility rooms, back rooms, office rooms or toilets, if it is not an important part of the presentation of our company. In the case of premises with several floors, you can take a walk up the stairs and using the elevator widget to change floors.

Sample calculations

Premises 15m2

Below is an example for a small café of 15m2 with a counter and several tables is composed of four panoramas. It contains three panoramas inside the premises and one panorama in front of the entrance, as the premises are located directly on the street.

The above examples are optimal proposals for creating a virtual walk in terms of usability and cost of service. Before each session, I offer a free quote and consultation, because each interior has different requirements. We can increase the number of panoramas by reducing the distance between them to increase the precision of movements or reduce their number if we show large objects such as a sports hall.

Stages of implementation


Before each session, we determine the range of rooms to be placed in the presentation of the premises and the path of the virtual walk. This is done on the basis of the floor plan provided by the client, but this is an estimate of the cost of the service. I prepare an accurate valuation after viewing the premises before or on the day of the session and determining the most important details, which guarantees the unchanged cost of the session.

Photo session

On the day of the session, you should prepare the premises for photos – clean up the rooms and everything that may be within the range of the lens. You should also inform the staff about the photos, as each person and object that will move during the session creates the effect of blurry ghosts in the photos. In the case of automatic doors, they must be locked for the duration of the session. The session can last approx. 2-3 hours.

Photo editing and connection creation

The session is followed by the process of combining photos that will make up the panorama and their processing. During the processing phase or before the publication of photos, all personal data, faces and license plates are blurred due to the rules for providing photos to Google Street View. It is also possible to blur selected elements at the customer’s request, or if this is included in the valuation – retouch the tripod / add a logo.

Publish to Google Maps

Ready-made photos that will be combined into a virtual walk are added to Google Maps, where they are processed. This can take up to 72 hours depending on the server load and the size of the virtual walk. Until then, not all photos and calls may be available. When everything is ready, I send such information with source files and HTML code to embed on the website.
