Directly Accessing Street View Data

This example displays a map, alongside a window that shows the Street View at the current marker's location on the map. The user can click the map to place a new marker and move the Street View location.

Read the documentation.

TypeScript

/*
 * Click the map to set a new location for the Street View camera.
