My Panos Selected for 360Cities’ Editor’s Pick and Google Earth

Back in March of 2009, just over 3 years ago, when I was finally beginning to actually understand how to make 360º panoramas, I uploaded 4 of my panos to 360Cities. I really was exploring their service and trying to learn more about panoramas at the time.

Little did I know that one of those panos, showing the 2007 draught-stricken Lake Allatoona (part of Atlanta‘s water system), would be selected as an “Editor’s Pick!” (I must confess to feeling a bit flattered. Many of these photographers do stunning work!) Amazingly, all 4 of the panos are being used by Google Earth as representations of their respective areas in Google Earth itself.

My panos have collectively been viewed almost 45,000 times in 3 years. Wow! I’m just shocked!

I really should upload and share some of my newer ones! I’ve gotten a good bit better at the art of pano-making, well… if not better, certainly I find making them vastly less frustrating! I’ve also been exploring the stereographic panorama projection, pictured below.
