Question About this hidden Google street view hack that allows clearer images, and other important stuff

I found a hidden street view hack that allows you to view the Google street view images very sharper and clearer, up to 12 megapixels the image will be. Like mostly when I use Google street view, the images mostly around the U.S., have blurry imagery and it's not that clear. So in order to make these street view images clearer, you have to put this code in: "&4pr11fo01". And that is what the code looks like exactly. And it said on this site that I found to put this code at the end of the street view Url. But I could not find the street view Url. Like how do I see and view this street view Url? Do you have any idea on how to do this? Because I have like no idea on where that Url is. Is that like the main address bar on the browser for the Url?
Because in Google Maps, there is a link button to click on. And here, there are 2 Urls, but I have no idea on what Url box I should enter this code into. So please help me out here on this problem that I am having, with this special code to make the images clearer. Because I would really appreciate that from you a lot.
So what I was talking about, now when I click on the link button in Google Maps, 2 Url boxes show up. So, one Url box says that you can paste the street view html to embed it into your website. And the other Url box says, paste link in email or IM (which means Instant Message.) So what Url box do I enter this code into? I tried to enter it in each box, but I couldn't get it to work at all. The street view imagery was still not good, because it was blurry and unclear. Now this is not good. Because I really want to try out this really cool code, and I want to really see how clear and sharp these street images really get! You know what I'm saying, right? Like I try to put in this special code at the end of the regular Url, but nothing happens and it doesn't work either. So please explain to me on how to really do this process, so it works with no problem for me.




And now, I want to talk to you about Google Maps API with street view. Are you familiar with Google Maps API or not? Because I am familiar with it, but I have no idea on how to use the API, because it has lots of codes. And I don't know where to enter these codes! Do I enter them in the street view Url or something like that? For example, like when I am on the Google street view API page, there are so many stange looking codes to enter. But how and where do I enter these street view codes? Do I need to use Javascript or something like that? And is there a certain way to make your own street view imagery too? And also, can you then add the imagery to the streets and create a blue outline, like there already is automatically? But what I really want to know here is this.
I was just wondering if it is possible to add like some hiking trails to the street view. And I also want to view the hiking trail, and also navigate down the trails. Man, that would be so awesome and cool if it could do this. But someone told me that I can't create any hiking trails by doing that process, because they told me that I would have to take the 360 degree street view pictures while I am walking on the trail. And I don't really want to do that, because that is just a big waste of time for me. You know what I'm saying here, right? So what I really want to know here from you is this. Is is very possible to add some hiking trails and navigate through them? Because this would be so much better then street view. But street view is prety cool so far, I guess.





And here is another thing I wanted to know from you. I would like to know on how to make a Train view layer, because this would so awesome. So this way, I can navigate down the railroad tracks and go on train bridges and tunnels, because this would make me really feel like I was on a train. So is that possible to do with those Google street view codes? I am talking about the Google Maps street view API codes. And I think that those codes are in Java, I bet. Well anyway, sorry for this long letter, but I really want to know much more about this important stuff. So don't forget to get back to me as soon as you can. I will be waiting for my response from you! So thank you very much now. Note: I broke up my letter into paragraphs and I also indented them for you too. So that way, it would be much easier for you to read it.

Question About that hidden street view code again

Yes. that is the code to enter in the street view Url. But I don't have any idea on what Url box to copy and paste this code into. So do you have any idea on how to do this? So please get back to me about this, and you also sound a little confused about this code thing. So if you know what I am talking about, please let me know. So get back to me as soon as you can, because I really want to try out this cool Google street view hack. So thanks a lot!

A quick search for "Google Street View hack" returned this page as the top result.

As for your other questions, that sounds like something that could be done from within Google Maps with the "My Maps" functionality.

Question How do I access the clearer street view images hack again?

I tried to do this as what you told me, but I have no idea on where to put in this special street view Url code. I tried to use the My Maps feature, but I still cannot seem to figure out on where to put this code! So please help me out here on where to put this code so that it really works. Because I really want to see these street view images much clearer and sharper. And I am also not to sure on how to add street view images to the My Maps section. Like all these street view codes on the Google maps street API page look very confusing to me. So please just explain to me on how to add my own street view layers, and tell me where to put them in when I start creating my own map? All right then? And also let me know too on how to make the street view images clearer by using the special code. Well anyway, so don't forget to get back to me pretty soon, and just explain to me on how to do this the easy way, so I do not get really confused about it. So that's about all for now. So thank you very much for your time!

From the link previously posted:

Quote:
By appending the variables "&4pr11fo01" at the end of a Google Street View URL (which you can obtained from the "paste link in email or IM" option on the right hand side), users will be able to see original Google view images in their highest resolutions
That's all I can tell you, as I've not used the feature myself. I only looked it up to assist you.

Sigh. Did anyone notice that the post that Slug linked to was posted on 1 April 2009? As APRIL FOOLS???

As if the code itself was not a dead giveaway....
