TEL AVIV (Reuters) - Google Inc will buy Israel-based Quicksee, whose software enables users to turn video into interactive virtual tours, for about $10 million, financial newspaper TheMarker said on Monday.

Officials at Quicksee declined to comment.

TheMarker said Quicksee’s technology is regarded as the missing link in Google’s Street View service, used by both Google Maps and Google Earth.

Google acquired Israeli web gadgets provider LabPixies in April for an estimated $25 million.
