Rotating 45° Imagery

This example creates a map showing satellite imagery tilted at 45 degrees, along with a button that will rotate the map periodically.

JavaScript

var map;

function initMap() {
  map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    center: { lat: 45.518, lng: -122.672 },
    zoom: 18,
    mapTypeId: "satellite",
    heading: 90,
    tilt: 45
  });
}

function rotate90() {
  var heading = map.getHeading() || 0;
  map.setHeading(heading + 90);
}

function autoRotate() {
  // Determine if we're showing aerial imagery.
  if (map.getTilt() !== 0) {
    window.setInterval(rotate90, 3000);
  }
}

CSS

/* Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div
       * element that contains the map. */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

/* Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. */
html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}

#floating-panel {
  position: absolute;
  top: 10px;
  left: 25%;
  z-index: 5;
  background-color: #fff;
  padding: 5px;
  border: 1px solid #999;
  text-align: center;
  font-family: "Roboto", "sans-serif";
  line-height: 30px;
  padding-left: 10px;
}
