The Street View API may issue an error or warning when something goes wrong. This guide explains each error message, and provides further instructions for resolving errors.
In the case of an invalid request, the Street View API returns
4xx status code and a message describing the
problem. Below are examples of such error conditions. Note: This is not
a complete list of the possible errors. Please check the actual error code
and message returned by the API for details of specific problems.
|Example of error condition||Status code|
|The request includes an invalid parameter, or a required parameter is
missing. For example, the
|The API key included in the request is invalid.||
Errors that prevent a street view image from being displayed
If the request is valid, but another error occurs that prevents the street view image from being displayed, the Street View API returns either text or an error image instead of the street view image, depending on the error. An example of such an error condition is when the application exceeds its usage limits.
Errors related to API keys and billing
If you use the Street View API without an API key, or if billing is not enabled on your account, the page displays an error image instead of a street view image, with a link indicating the type of error. For example "g.co/streetviewerror/key".
