Best of World Wide Panorama 2005 in Google Earth

One of my favorite collections of placemarks for Google Earth is the World Wide Panorama which shows the locations of Quicktime viewable panorama photographs taken by photographers all over the world. You can view the satellite or aerial photos of the location, plus the 3D terrain in Google Earth. And, you can compare them to a "3D" photograph of the same location in much more detail. Earlier this month they updated the WWP collection and included a list of the Best of 2005 panoramas. After you downlaod the GE file, turn off the entire collection in the "Temporary Places" folder by clicking on "Worldwide Panorama". Then, turn on the "Best of 2005" subfolder to just see those panoramas first. Afterwards, you can turn on the other folders and continue to explore.

You must have Quicktime installed to view these pictures. The photos are not really 3D. They are more like pan/tilt panorama photographs than 3D. Some are just panoramas, but some show photos in a complete 360 degree sphere you can pan/tilt as if you are really there. I especially like the ones taken from airplanes or kites. Here is the official Worldwide Panorama web site.
