For help in the console:

google_streetview -h

Ensure that a Google API developer key is set:

google_streetview -s key="your_dev_key"

Search street view for latitude and longitude 46.414382,10.013988:

google_streetview "46.414382,10.013988"

Save images to a directory:

google_streetview --location="46.414382,10.013988" --save_downloads=downloads

Obtain a 360 panorama by rotating the camera heading given a 90 degree field of vision fov::

google_streetview --location="46.414382,10.013988" --fov=90 --heading=0;90;180;270

Use as a Python module:

# Import google_streetview for the api module
import google_streetview.api

# Define parameters for street view api
params = [{
	'size': '600x300', # max 640x640 pixels
	'location': '46.414382,10.013988',
	'heading': '151.78',
	'pitch': '-0.76',
	'key': 'your_dev_key'

# Create a results object
results = google_streetview.api.results(params)

# Download images to directory 'downloads'
