Create a treasure hunt game using Google Maps and Street View to share with others.
Create A New Treasure Map
• Treasure Maps create a 'treasure hunt' style game using Google Maps and Street View. Follow clues to discover a series of places on the map.
• You can navigate either by clicking directly on the map or by clicking on the navigation arrows within Google Street View
• When you get close to your destination an image is displayed in the street view panorama, along with a 'You Are Close!' message in the top right corner.
A proximity indicator shows approximately how close you are.
• Click on the image displayed within the street view panorama when you find a place. After finding a place you obtain a clue to the next place to search for.
• For extra assistance there is a bounding circle showing the area which contains the target destination. As you move closer towards the destination this circle will reduce in size.
• You can play one of the featured Treasure Maps below or use the simple editor tool to create your own Treasure Maps.
• Use the Treasure Map Edit Page to add, edit and delete places from your Treasure Map and change various map settings.
• For each place you should choose the map location and then select a nearby street view that contains a view of the place.
• You should set a clue for each place and also select an image that is displayed alongside the clue and within the street view. The image is not mandatory but helps to create a better experience for the user.
• Please ensure that you have the right to use the image and where appropriate provide image attribution and a link which will be displayed beneath the image.
• You can also add a description and a website link for each place to provide supplementary information
• Each place has a field called 'order' which sets the order in which images are displayed during the game. A random number between 0 and 1 is added to the order each game. You can assign the same order value to multiple places and randomize the order that places will apear during the treasure hunt.
• The range value is the distance in metres where the place's image is displayed in the street view. The default value is 50 metres.
• Maps are free to use provided thgat you do not modify the code used to display the maps.
• Images within the map must either be your own property or be used in accordance with the image's licence. Where appropriate include a link to the original image's site/author.
• Maps should not include content which is offensive or which breaches personal privacy. The map should comply with the Google Maps API terms and conditions.
