Google Street View Into UE4

Hi all, I’m just wondering if/how it might be possible to use data from google street view in Unreal Engine? Is there a way to integrate the maps API into the engine? If so, how might this be done?

I’m imahining a scenario in game where a player interacts with an in-game map, and based on their current location an image like this is seen:

I’m a web developer getting into UE4 and just wondering if this kind of thing is possible, and if so I’d appreciate any tips on how I might try and go about it or any documentation I might want to look at.

Thanks!

It could be done, but there is no out-of-the-box way to do so. You will need to either write a custom plugin, or come up with a custom HUD that is built on HTML5. Take a look at BLUI, maybe you can do something with it.

Thanks Devfo! I’m new to this engine, could you give a couple of pointers about how to write a custom plugin or what an HUD is and how I might write that? Would this be done in JavaScript within the engine?

BLUI looks really promising! Thanks for that tip!

Your link positions me very far from my house, like 20 kms away.

It kind of kills the immersion.

there a lot of documentation in UE forums and wiki for begin amoeboar…
