DigitalUrban Announces Panorama Viewer for Google Earth

By December 20, 2006 21 Comments

digitalurban.blogspot.com is pleased to announce a panorama viewer for Google Earth. Until now to view a panorama you had to use hotlinks to a html browser, now you can view high resolution panoramas directly inside of Google Earth.

The movie above illustrates a series of panoramas using the pre-release version. There are a few issues to iron out with a release aimed for early in January 2007. The viewer will be made available free of charge along with a tutorial detailing how to import any panoramic views at the correct location.

Any thoughts or feedback so far would be welcome.

YouTube does not currently support 16:9 movies, you can download the movie at full resolution and the correct aspect ratio here (39Mb .wmv format)

(note apologies for the poor formatting of the post – blogger seems to currently lose line spacing when you insert a movie).
