Quality of imagery 
  • depends on the budget 
  • remember that majority of the public use mobile phone so lower quality is ok to suit small screen


Photos  V's video frames 

Cost V's convenience 
Photos are individual set up; uploads, positioning and linking/connecting

Video frame extraction is AI (artificial Intelligence) via the Google server 
for and against: raw upload - almost no editing, faster, cheaper, no tweaking images
 

Video are fine for paths and trails, add photos for landmark points







Procedure 

1. upload photo / video 
2. images appear in google map (photos instant or within 4 hrs  / video frames up to 3 days)


Legend
blue line: images connected  - > you can move along the images with an arrow 
blue circles: images are not connected (yet)  

3. enhancements: 36 hrs later
AI (Artificial Intelligence) examines data to fine tune and join images into blue lines

4. manual changes: 4 days later
