Create Your Own 360° Google Maps Street View with Photo Spheres

Create Your Own 360° Google Maps Street View with Photo Spheres | Presentation Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

Thanks to "photo spheres" and Google Maps you can now create your own "street view" of any place on earth.

To do so you must first shoort "photo spheres" with a dedicated app for your Android smartphone or through your DLSR camera

"Creating Street View from your photo spheres is as easy as connecting the dots into what looks like a “constellation” of stars."

You can even connect your photo spheres to our Google's own Street View panoramas.
