I just found that we can see Google Street View images from the following link: https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/streetview?size=640x640&location=38.3810257,-89.486167&heading=0 (where heading is the rotation).
My question is that. How can I download that image from my terminal?

I tried with:

wget https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/streetview?size=640x640&location=38.3810257,-89.486167&heading=0

But it creates a file named "wget-log" and its content says ERROR 400: Bad Request.
Thank you

  • did you singe quote url ? because & has a special meaning in most shell. – Archemar Jul 6 '17 at 13:49

The problem is that I need to quote the url because of &:

wget "https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/streetview?size=640x640&location=38.3810257,-89.486167&heading=0" -O downloaded.jpg
