Firstly I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has uploaded their off-road 360 tours to https://www.mapthepaths.com/.
We’ve passed 100,000 panoramas. Onto 1 million!
I’d like to use this post to share some of the recent features we’ve shipped, and give you an insight into what we’re thinking for the future (and how you can help).

Map the Paths Roadmap (1st half of 2021)
- Better support for uploads to Street View (Uploader). This is to address a number of issues when uploading a high volume of images each day (>1000).
- A simpler Tour interface to navigate through all photos in a Tour. Right now this is slightly disjointed as you have to jump between sequences.
- The ability to see all photos in map views. Today when inside sequence / tour / guidebook views you can only see photos that belong to each. From a navigation perspective it would make sense to include all MTP photos in the map view and making a distinction between photos that belong to current sequence and those in other sequences.
Do you have an idea for a new feature?
- Let us know here on the forum.
- If you’re technically inclined, you can also dive into the code on GitHub: https://github.com/trek-view/mtp-web
Support Map the Paths
I currently pay to keep Map the Paths online out of my own pocket. As the project grows, this becomes more expensive.
