    Hi all.

    Just trying to figure out which Google Maps API might be better to use in SSA.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Maria,

    As far as I know, if you are wanting to display the Google Street View in the left-hand info panel, then you need to use the "Map Embed API".  From my notes at the time: "this provides 'Embed' and 'Embed Advanced' options.  SSA uses the 'Embed Advanced' option to provide the Street View.

    Hi James.

    Thanks for the reply.
    We were considering using the Maps JavaScript API, but it's good to know which one allows for the street view.
