Another Panorama Innovation for Google Earth

Google Earth as Panorama ViewerAndy at DigitalUrban has been continuing his exploration of panorama technologies with Google Earth. This time he has taken a panoramaic photo and overlayed it on top of the Google Earth globe. He then put some placemarks in it to label things in the photo (in this case the name of a couple of buildings). This is an interesting twist in using the image overlay feature of Google Earth (which is usually used to put things like clouds over the Earth). So essentially Andy is making GE a panorama viewer. Check it out . (I recommend you have layers like “Borders” turned off, and other placemarks off – or turn them on for some weird looking views).
Also, a couple of other people have used the tutorial on making panoramas with GE. If you have Quicktime VR installed (or a suitable viewer) here is: Moscow, Russia (more info), and New York City (more info).
