Google Maps Makes It Easier to Access Interior Imagery

Back in January, Google opened up its Business Photos for Google Maps pilot program to any and all small businesses that wanted to participate. Because of that, thousands of businesses now allow users to take a trip inside their stores without ever leaving the couch. Today, Google is making a slight improvement to maps to allow users to access the interior street view in a much easier manner.

All you have to do is drag Pegman onto the location. From the Google Lat-Long blog:

Now, if you’re searching or browsing Google Maps and want to check out what a business looks like on the inside, we’ve improved your ability to find and view these 360-degree panoramics. Simply drag and drop the orange Pegman on the left hand side of your screen onto an orange circle on the map. Voila! You’ll be virtually transported through the doors, and able to pan around and explore the interior of the establishment.

It’s that simple.
