Geocaching Street View

This script shows a Google Street View of the cache site, on the cache pages.

What This Script Does

This script adds a Google Street View image of the cache location (if one is available) to the cache page.

The tooltip on the icon shows the name of the cache (or waypoint) and the distance from the viewer (the Street View car). This can be configured to show in meters. Click on the gear icon above the map to set this and other options.

If there are additional waypoints, or corrected coordinates, they are all shown on the map, and are scaled appropriately with distance in the Street View.

The map and the Street View image are linked together. Moving one is reflected on the other.

You can also click on the "Full" button at the top to view the same map(s) in the full browser window.

This script works in both Firefox with Greasemonkey and Google Chrome with Tampermonkey.

Hmmm, for some reason this script has stopped working for me. FF 23.0.1 is used.
