Google Streetview & Drone Photography


We're setting things up for February's SIMS and here's what we have so far. 

Our first speaker is Carl Lamb.

Google Street View for Business with Carl Lamb.

Since it's humble beginnings at Stanford University in the USA, Google Street View has gone on to become a worldwide phenomenon. We now take for granted that we can research almost any address and see exactly where we need to go. Perhaps for a meeting, the monthly catch up with friends or maybe to view places we remember from our childhood. 

Recently, Google has allowed businesses themselves to become integrated into Street View, allowing their customers to not only see where they are based on the map, but to be able to interactively explore inside a location and really get to know the business on an unprecedented level. 

In this session we will cover: 

  • What is Google Street View for Business? 
  • Where is it seen?
  • How to best showcase a business with Street View
  • Some weird and wonderful examples for inspiration! 

Carl Lamb from ambientLight is an immersive virtual tour creator helping both local businesses and national brands engage customers through the power of interactive 360 degree tours online. Carl was approached directly by Google in early 2012 in order to help provide the new Google Street View for business service to customers throughout East Anglia. 

Our second speaker is Pete Kyle
