Google Street View Indoor Maps Set to Expand with 'Trusted Photographers'

Last year, Google allowed the Street View mapping to cover the indoors of establishments through which shoppers were able check the interiors of various stores, salons, restaurants and many more places without actually going inside those places.

Now the web search giant has launched a "trusted photographer" program that will facilitate business owners to get 360 degree images of their business set up included in Google Street View.

To add any business on the Google Maps under this feature, one has to look for a Google Trusted Photographer located near them on the latest Google business photos website. Thereafter, coordinate independently with that photographer to conduct a photo shoot of the business set up.

Google stated on Small Business Blog: "This self-serve model makes for easier scheduling and quicker turnaround, while also supporting the local photographers in your community,"

Further the post read, "When finished, the photographer will upload the images to Google, and shortly thereafter, you'll see 360-degree panoramic views of your business on, Google Maps, and your Google Places listing."

Currently the trusted photographers are located in 14 cities in US which includes New York, Las Angeles, Washington, D.C, San Francisco and so on. In fact, this service is also offered in UK, France, Australia and New Zealand.
