Street View In Lego Style!

Turn Your Street View Into Brick View!

There is no doubt that there are many uses for Google’s Street View, but just occasionally wouldn’t you like to spice it up a bit or make a change to your view of things? Well you can get a different view with Brick Street View that changes everything to Lego with some added features such as; toy cars, trees and buildings. It’s all the idea of Swedish coder Einar Oberg who uses LDraw, BRIGL, GSVPano, GSVPanoDepth, ThreeJS, Google Places API, and the Google App Engine to make this possible.

Street View In Lego Style!

The street view panorama itself is just a textured sphere, but to make the scene come to life and to add more perspective, real Lego models is inserted such as cars, flowers and trees. Even base plates for the roads. For this I use a format called LDraw. An open standard for LEGO CAD programs that allow the user to create virtual LEGO models and scenes.
