"embed an animated street view rotation"

Can anyone make this work in the latest beta of Firefox 3?

Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and the San Francisco Bay Area according to gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2 ...

They've certainly expanded on the SF Bay Area – my house is on there now although the resolution of the new footage seems much lower than the older stuff.

There is no option to switch the "streetview little guy" icon. Hope that becomes available soon.

Because I want a race car or a UFO instead.

Neat, my house is now on Streetview too!

Though I agree the new footage is much lower-res. Could this be intentional? (Lower cost *and* less privacy concerns.)

YES! They added Spokane. Neighbor snooping it is.

it was a joke, Ionut.

There is also St-Petersburg... not in Russia, but in Florida (not so cold)

Josue –

The street view guy icon is not hard-coded into the API at all. Check out this example:
gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/s ...

All you need to do is create your own icon and replace the GIcon/setImage code in there. Have fun!

I am so waiting for Columbus because I have ABSOLUTELY no sense of direction (if you tell me to turn right, I will go left – sometimes) and that the GPS I have totally sucks. Having street view will help me a whole lot because having a visual image of where I am going is, well, better & safer. *sigh*
