World Wide Panorama

In a post last month Thomas Rauscher announced his places file which allows you to view the locations and access the neat panorama photos from around the world courtesy of The World Wide Panorama.

Most of the panoramas use the Quicktime VR plugin, so you have to have Quicktime with the VR viewer installed from Apple. I like the way Thomas has added photos of the panorama in each placemark and links to the panorama photos themselves. The links take you to the World Wide Panorama web page for the specific panorama.

    The value here is how you're tracking this fast-breaking technology. A lot of people have been asking me how the terrific Google Earth database could be used, and the numerous ways people are thinking of are remarkably inventive. Reminds me of the early days of Mosaic in many ways.

    Thanks Paul, I agree Google Earth presents a new paradigm for getting to Internet information not unlike Mosaic. However, although I think Google Earth will be very popular, I don't think it will be as big as the web browser. Only a subset of people are visually oriented enough to find 3D graphics applications interesting (this is what I've noticed working in the field for over 20 year).

    What really excites me about this program is imagining what it's going to be evolving into as people become more innovative with it's uses. The panorama shots are probably going to be just the tip of the iceberg as VR technology increases.
