Map of the Week – 360 Degree Panoramic Video Linked to Google Maps

By May 23, 2007 One Comment

Linking panoramas with Google Maps has been a aim of many panorama creators – we have added overlays within Google Maps via Quicktime, complete with interaction – but its always nice to have a marker showing where you are looking (see our Google Map Panorama Post for a working example, as pictured below).

Map Movin 360 takes this a stage further by linking panoramic video and Google Maps, the result is the ability to pan around the video with Google Maps updating according to your viewpoint.

Map Movin 360 is well worth a look – it would be interesting to see if the same could be done with QuickTime panoramas or the emerging flash panorama viewers.

Thanks go to Google Maps Mania for highlighting this one..
