360 Cities Panoramic Photography (viewer interactive site)

Recommended Posts

Hey there fellow groovyPosters ...

 

 

Just thought that I'd pass along an interesting website that has been in my Firefox bookmarks for awhile now.

 

After viewing the following thread here on groovyPost by fellow member "Animis" entitled "Great site for geography Techs" (link here: http://www.groovypost.com/forum/hardware-software/great-site-for-geography-techs-t95719.html ), I was inclined to contribute another thread that dovetails with Animis' thread topic.

 

I figured that there may be others out there in cyberspace / groovyPost who may enjoy viewing interactive 360 degree panoramic photography from around the world. Apparently, the site I am recommending has been so well received, that it is now the default choice in the "Photos" layer of Google Earth (along with images via the "Panoramio" website here at http://www.panoramio.com/ ).

 

The site is known as 360cities.net and has some breathtakingly high-rez images of both popular and off-the-beaten-path locations from around the world.

 

Some images even allow the viewer to interact within them via small directional arrows placed throughout the 360 degree view. By clicking on an interactive arrow symbol, the viewer is taken further into the picture and shown a location that is related to the original location. (Be it an unusual landmark, structure, statue, etc.)

 

It is akin to a virtual trek across distances both near and far without ever having to leave the comfort of your position behind the keyboard. :mrgreen:

 

 

The link for the 360cities.net site can be accessed here:

And on a final note, be sure to check out the incredible use of both "infrared" and "near-infrared" images in a 360 degree format on the site as well. Simply stunning.

Take care everyone and do enjoy.

This one is pretty cool, wish it was a little more obvious on the navigation but it isn't too hard to figure out.

I just took nice little tour of France.

Good deal ...

 

Be sure to check out the infrared / near infrared 360 views as well. In addition, some of the Asian locations are pretty cool. The infrared filter adds sort of an otherworldly effect to the various scenes.

 

Glad you enjoyed. ;-)
