We are very happy to announce that 360 Cities has moved from the “Gallery” layer in Google Earth to the new “Photos” layer. This layer is new, and contains images by both Panoramio and 360 Cities. It is also switched on by default, which means that our images will be available to a larger audience than before!
To view the Photos layer, make sure that you have it selected in the sidebar in Google Earth, as you see in this screenshot:
Then, go anywhere in the world… Panoramio photos are the blue squares and 360 Cities panoramas are the red squares. Sometimes there are lots of each kind, like here:
Easter Island (Rapa Nui)
So, happy exploring. We are really excited about this new development, most of all because we know how many more people out there we can inspire to make panoramic photos themselves, and publish them on 360 Cities and Google Earth!
