Is It Possible to Extract All Photos From Google Maps?
Google Maps shows photos that are added by users and place owners. Thousands of photos can be found at popular businesses and places. Google encourages contributors to share photos and comments.
Google Maps Photos are an invaluable resource. They can be studied, analyzed, and used for different purposes. So it may be desirable to extract and download all the photos in a place for various reasons. Of course, it is not possible to download these added photos one by one. It takes a very long time and a lot of effort.
Due to this demand and need, scraping services have been developed to extract all the photos from a place on Google Maps without spending too much time and effort. Outscraper Google Maps Photo Scraper is one of them.
What is Outscraper Google Maps Photo Scraper?
Outscraper has many scraping services. Google Maps Photo Scraper is one of them. This service allows you to extract the download links for all the photos uploaded to a place or business registered in Google Maps.
Google Maps Photo Scraper service works entirely on the cloud. The service carries all the load on its own servers. For this reason, you do not feel the need for any proxy for your own connection. You can scrape all photos without being stuck with the Google limit thanks to Outscraper’s own proxies. You only need to adjust a few parameters to create a task.
Creating Tasks and Setting Parameters
As it is possible to extract photos from all businesses in a category, it is also possible to scrape all photos from a single place with the location link.
When the “Plain queries (search keywords, place IDs, URLs, etc.)” option is activated, it is possible to scrape directly over place links.
It is very easy to set the parameters for both methods. Outscraper App Dashboard has a clean interface. Easy to use and create tasks. Let’s check how we can scrape photos both ways.
Scraping Photos From Places With Categories
If you want to scrape photos from categories, Outscraper scrapes the places first on the selected location in the background. Then it scrapes the photos of these places one by one.
For example, when you want to extract photos of museums in the New York region, first of all, museums are searched on Google Maps as shown in the image. Then the photos are extracted from these museums.
A ready-made list will appear when choosing a category on the app dashboard. The target category can be easily selected from this list. The category list is compiled from Google Maps. The entire list can be viewed here: Google Maps Categories
Like categories, locations are also presented to users as a ready-made list. You can select all countries and cities from the list of locations. And “Custom locations” option can be used to scrape a custom area. Using zip codes is another way to scan and scrape deeply in densely populated areas.
Photos limit per one place
This parameter helps you determine how many photos will scraped from each place/business in the category. If you want to scrape all photos from all places, you can enter a big number, like 20,000. In this way, the download links of all photos are extracted without limitation. Of course, this varies from place to place.
Places per one query search
“Places per one query search” specifies the limit of organizations to take from one query search.
When you use the query to find a specific place, like `Central Park, NY, US`, you probably want to use `1` to get the first place (just in case Google will find something else). However, when you search for `Museums, NY, USA` you might want to extract all the places from your search and use `500`.
There are no more than 500 places per one query search on Google Maps. For densely populated areas, you might want to use zip codes to scrape all places in a densely populated area.
In other parameters, you can specify the result file extension and write a tag for the task.
Scraping Photos From Places With Links and IDs
The most basic reason to create a photo scraping task with a location link and Place ID is to scrape the desired number of photos directly from a place.
Google Maps link can be used directly as a query. You only need to copy and paste the link. Apart from the link, you can use Google and Places IDs or search queries with the combination of category + city/zip + country.
Photos Limit Per One Place
Every place can have tens, hundreds, or even thousands of photos. If all photos are to be scraped, the total number of photos on Google Maps can be written to the limit. If only a certain number of photos are to be extracted, that number should be written to the limit.
For example, if you wanted to scrape all the photos from a place (like the Museum of Arts and Design) in Google Maps, you can define the number of photo pieces written there as the limit as shown in the image.
However, we would like to inform you that Google Maps does not allow access to all the photos in the number it shows for various reasons. Therefore, a scraping result may not be exactly the same as the number there.
The “Region” parameter specifies the country to use for Google searching. It is optional. When you use direct links or IDs of places, you might want to ignore this option as it will overwrite the links “ql parameter and filter out items from other countries. It’s still necessary to provide the country inside queries.
