Google Street View's Partner Program

Google has a partner program for Street View. "Do you manage a unique property (pedestrian mall, amusement park, university campus, etc.) that users would like to visit in Street View? Through our Partner Program, you can now request Google to collect imagery of your location. Once the images are added to Street View, people all over the world will be able to virtually explore your property."

For now, the program is limited to properties that are interesting to Google's users. Some of the examples included in the FAQ: "zoos, parks, universities, amusement parks, outdoor marketplaces, stadiums, monuments, tourist destinations, and race tracks".

Here's a Street View tricycle at the Palace of Versailles:



... and another Street View trike at Stonehenge:

  2. Is it just me, or are neither of those two locations available in street view? Versailles may have just been shot since the YouTube video is only a few days old, but the Stonehenge video was put up in July!

  3. Niraj, it was apparently a marketing shot after the real Google Maps shot.
