This is a small tool I wrote to extract Google StreetView panoramas.
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
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.
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!
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.Download link: http://olbyonline.com/downloads/StreetViewGrabber/StreetViewGrabber(v1.6.0).zip
