Due to underlying infrastructure updates, starting May 2nd 2017 we plan to begin rolling out changes to the Pano ID format of User Generated Street View panoramas. As part of this we will also slightly increase the number of available panoramas.

Requests for User Generated Panoramas using the old pano value in Maps API JS (StreetViewPanoramaOptions) or using iframe embeds will still work, but if you try to find a panorama using a position param you will get the new id back. There is no need to map the old and new pano ids as both will remain valid.

Please note, that because we cannot guarantee the format of pano ids will stay the same, it is recommended not to depend on pano id parsing and/or verification logic.

Here is an example of old and new user generated pano ids:
old: "F:-Q0isUBpewrs/WEcwcDf18II/AAAAAAABBtU/Hbq9iln1WLUrsOe-YqDKNNB0EW0chdMiQCLIB"

Happy mapping!
