2. Create a Blue Line on Street View
This feature is used if you want to publish a Google blue line tour which is not meant for any business page on Google. This type of tour is a series of sequence panoramas that are not associated with any business and are for a street or path.
To create a Blue Line, you need at least 25 panoramas, shot on the street or path, where the panoramas are 3-5m (10-16ft) apart. It needs to be outside, and the panoramas need to have a sky.
Check out these articles for more details about a blue line tour.
3. Create a Virtual Tour on TourMkr.com
This will send you to the same screen as the Business or the Blue Line tour. TourMkr tour or Hosted Tour uses options which can be set in the same way as the Google Business tour, you can also modify the panoramas or patch the nadir but the difference is you do not publish a hosted tour on Google.
Hosted Tour will be available for any listing on GoThru and the images are served by GoThru servers.

4. Import panoramas from Google Street View
It allows you to import Tours that have been published with the Street View App or another third party application. To import a tour already published to GoThru, you can use the business name and the address. If the search by a business name does not work, you can import the tour using the CID.
