Another in the series of Google Earth Panoramic Spheres – this time featuring a panorama of the Hoover Tower, Stanford by Scott Haefner. Scott used our viewer to embed a kite based aerial panorama above the tower at Stanford.
The movie below demonstrates the principle of the viewer as well as providing an insight into how it can be used:
The Hoover Tower serves as a landmark of Stanford University to faculty, students, alumni and the local community. Completed in 1941 to celebrate the university’s 50th anniversary, the 285-foot structure offers superb views of Stanford and the Bay Area from its observation deck. Atop Hoover Tower is a carillon of 48 bells cast in Belgium. The largest bell is inscribed, “For Peace Alone Do I Ring.”
Take a look at Scott’s site for the KMZ file of the Hoover Tower.
