Put your mouse cursor near the wanted location and then double click or simply drag the map. The map image will move so that the chosen point is in the centre.
To increase or decrease the scale resolution, click on the plus (+) or minus (-) sign at the side. The scale changes so that you can home in accurately on the wanted street or street view location. Repeat several times.
When you are ready click on the orange man icon and drag over the map to the blue road where the camera for the street view has visited.
Orient the street view image using the panning control and compass circle in the upper left. Experiment till you learn how to use it.
The latitude and longitude of the dot at the centre of the map is displayed, together with the Ordnance Survey Grid Reference OSGB.
Please note that this page is free of charge for you to use. Unfortunately, since July 2018, I now I have to pay Google for each page load, each location geo-coded and for each use of the Yellow man icon for looking at the images where the Google camera vehicles have visited. The cost of this all tens to add up with thousands of access perm month at about 0.5p per item!, so please go easy on usage. If you see that "Daily Quota Exceeded" - then sorry, please go to some other web site. Thank you for your understanding.l
If you are going on holiday I suggest you find your hotel and then view the hotel as seen from the road and also browse around the nearby streets to get some idea of what the area is like. This page will work abroad in places where the Google camera cars have travelled and taken photos of the views as seen from the road.
