ofxStreetView

Trying to improve the stitching between panoramic views for my SKYLINES II project I came across some encrypted depth information inside Google Street View database. This become popularized by the short video PointCloudCity and later become SKYLINE III, a series of postcards revealing the invisible information of a city that is otherwise trapped inside corporate databases, freeing private information collected from public spaces.

Washington Sq

Queensboro Bridge

Île de la Cité, Paris

How it works

By doing the call:

http://cbk0.google.com/cbk?output=xml&panoid=[pano_id]&dm=1

We get information that looks like this

At you can seee a depth image encoded in base64 (and zlib compressed)

This addon will construct the panoramic image (that you can get with getTextureReference() ) and then construct a 3D Mesh using the DepthMap information.
