Interested in 360 cameras? Wondering what all the fuss is about? Next-generation 360 cameras can create (and update) Street View in a snap, offering an easy way to contribute 360 imagery to Google Maps. Interested in testing a 360 camera and discovering how you can create your own Street View 360 images? Read on!
At the Street View Summit in May, we announced an expansion of the Street View camera loan program to include 360 cameras. We debuted this program in the Netherlands and now have cameras available to loan in Austria, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Apply to borrow a Street View camera, and tell us a bit about any projects you have in mind. When applying, please be sure to select the option to tell us that you participate in the Local Guides program and we will fast-track your application. We are not able to fill all requests, but if you are selected, you will be able to retain the camera for 45 days, with the possibility of an extension.
Stay tuned - we are working hard to expand eligibility to additional countries in the future.
Thanks for your continued contributions to Google Maps and your passion for 360 imagery!
