This document is intended for developers who want to write applications that allow users to upload 360 photos to Google Street View, so that they can be viewed publicly on Google Maps.
Before you start
You need a Google Account to access the Google API Console, request an API key, and register your application.
After creating your project, make sure the Street View Publish API is one of the services that your application is registered to use:
If your application will use any API methods that require user authorization, read the authentication guide to learn how to implement OAuth 2.0 authorization.
Remember your photos need the metadata described in Photo Sphere XMP Metadata in order to be published.
