Street level browsing

Some great new developments in the virtual world as different companies vie to become the leading online providers of street level panoramas and imagery linked to the overall map. The scene is moving along fast and it seems as though every time I look it up its gone through the next step change with companies such as EveryScape putting up a technology preview of its annotatable 360deg bubbles taken at geo-referenced locations… its smooth and an exciting preview of what’s to come.
Also check out goggle’ssteetview for locations such as New York…. or ogle earth’s podcast on the latest developments. And if you want to be blown away, go see what Microsoft is pouring some of its coffers into with photosynth. I’m not sure how long this one will take to become a reality or piece of software that we can start to put our own photographs into but it shows tremendous promise.
