Google Street View is a helpful tool for letting users get a sense of the landmarks in a new area where they're traveling, but the Google Maps Streetview Player application is an even more efficient way for users with a limited sense of direction to stay oriented. The site automatically collates every single Street View image that makes up the given trip, letting people preview exactly what their upcoming trips will look like.
Google Maps Streetview Player is a third-party application built by programmer Brian Folts, but it nonetheless comes with many of the key features of the Google Maps system. For instance, users can select different modes of transportation aside from driving, such as cycling, public transit, or walking.
