Your Photos Can Help Google Street View – Learn How
Google’s Street View is a program of “virtual representation of our environment on Google Maps, which is made up of millions of panoramic images”.
Your content comes from two sources: Google and contributors. That is why anyone can take a photo and upload it to Street View so that other users around the world can virtually explore the planet and have a 360 ° experience visiting incredible destinations through Google Maps.

Street View navigation combines 360º photos, accelerometers, gyroscope and also GPS coordinates. So the app allows access to almost every part of the world as if you were physically there and for free.
Some time ago, Google had a program called ‘Street View Trekkers’, in which they made the loan of the necessary equipment to be able to take pictures and upload them to Street View: a special Trekker backpack equipped with a 360º camera compatible with the app.

Now the loan program has been canceled and anyone in the world can upload content from your cell phone without the need for it to have a 360º camera. It only requires an Android compatible with ARCore augmented reality (Google system).
Before anyone could upload their own photos to Google Street View, however, the contents had to be taken with a camera with 360º capture, the same format that Street View cars use.
However, Street View cars were not capable of reaching all corners of the world, nor was it easy to send travelers with the Trekker backpack. So now anyone with this device can contribute to the application.
“You can create Street View images with your Android smartphone using a new beta feature in the Street View app”, It reads in its Web page.
Another option offered by Google is “get Street View compatible products and post images”.
