Space Needle via Google Maps API



Just an experiment to see if this API Key thing really works.

The URL for an Embed API request is as follows:
https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/MODE?key=AIzaSyBeETmzg-g7-YuzXNpLln-nTQifA6D6nrk&parameters
Where:
  • {MODE} is one of placedirectionssearchview, or streetview.
  • {API_KEY} is your free API key.
  • parameters include optional parameters, as well as mode-specific parameters.

No, it doesn't work properly. I changed to the photo view and zoomed in, only to get weird artefacts to the NE of the space tower :-(

Can't handle that new fangled building style? It's all the rage you know, or at least it was ten years ago. Good exercise for the designers and the metal workers who had to implement it. Since it's a public building, I didn't care. It's an arbitrary construct with no actual value.
