Update v1.6

    + Added support for both the new and the old URL formatting
    + New image server address (solved the all black panoramas issue)
    + Fixed missing tiles issue on maximum quality setting (resolution of 13312x6656 pixels)
    + Import multiple panorama URLs from clipboard (separated by newline symbol)

Update v1.5

    + Redesigned interface
    + Multiple panorama extraction (pano list)
    + Built-in preview (OpenGL)

Hi guys,

This is a small tool I wrote to extract Google StreetView panoramas.

Image

To download 360 panorama go to the location in StreetView maps, copy the URL from the address bar of your browser. Paste it into StreetView grabber by clicking the Add Pano button. Select desired resolution (quality) and click Grab! Multiple panoramas can be queued.
To import a large number of panorama ID's in one go:
    1. Create a list of URLs in your favourite text editor
    2. Each link needs to be on a separate line
    3. Copy to clipboard
    4. Click Add Pano button and hit Yes - import panoramas from clipboard

Image

By default pano grabber will stitch separate tiles into one big file and crop it for a seamless tiling (use 'Weld Tiles' and 'Crop Panorama' to change the behaviour). When grabbing is done you can click Preview to open a separate OpenGL preview window that allows you to visually inspect panoramas.

Image

Mind you that grabbing process will slow down as the quality setting is increased. For instance the highest level will download 338 512×512 pixel tiles (!) so you need a decent computer and speedy internet connection to do it. There is no separate download thread so user interface will seem unresponsive while tiles are downloaded. It takes some time to load and preview large panoramas due to bulky images. Be patient!

Image

Additionally, am not sure if Google will tolerate such data extraction, so use it at your own will & risk. My intention to write this was purely for selfish educational purposes.

Have fun! :D

How did you created the panorama viewer? Is it done with PB?
I have a lot of panoramas and it would be nice if I could show them with PB.

Panorama viewer is created in DBPro.. it's really great for creating 3d stuff quickly. When I'll have time I want to create a better viewer (with zoom etc.) either in DarkGDK or maybe using the internal PB OGRE library.

I like it! :)
Instead of a separate download thread, consider ways to use installed download managers.
For example, Internet Download Manager can be configured to automatically start downloading tile files from URLs placed in the clipboard.

I got your PM. Sorry I'm busy these days. I will have a look at the code next week perhaps, your suggestions are valid - url list will make it a lot better. Just give me a few weeks while I sort my stuff for college and make an update.

Of course, Olby!
But if you think, you send the code to me, I try to rewrite (because I'm php programmer), though I do not develop in pure basic. I think it's time to try. :-)

Hmm.. I haven't touched the download code. Perhaps you're behind a firewall?
