OgleSweden – Panoramas of Sights in Sweden in Google Earth

Stefan Geens, who writes the tech-savvy Google Earth-oriented OgleEarth blog, has just spent a little over two weeks traveling throughout Sweden recording interesting sights. Naturally, he chose to create a special “OgleSweden” blog and map his trip and use a special camera rig to take some excellent panoramic photos. He says he used the Google My Maps feature to map each segment, and you can view the entire route in Google Earth with links to the panoramic photos. I wish he had included a small version of the panoramas you could view in each placemark, but the photos are definitely worth viewing in a browser where you can see more details. I think the tool he is using to view the panoramas requires an <iframe>, which isn’t supported in placemarks. Make sure you read Stefan’s posts as well, as he provides some interesting perspectives on each site and the culture and history of Sweden. Great work Stefan! Here’s a sample of the panoramas:

  1. Hi Frank
    You should could embed Stefans panoramas, since they are flash obejcts. I have setup a demo with two of his panoramas in a KML file.

    Open the KML file to see the code for adding the panorams into a KML file.
    it’s works fine on a Windows mashine

  2. Thanks, Frank. Thumbnails are coming, on the road I just didn’t have the time. It was pretty intense:-)

    I just checked the archipelago of Stockholm to see how many pleasure boats have been launched after the winter season.
    To me the photos of today show far too many boats,
    which have been launched.
    I beleive the photots show the situation last autumn.
    Please clarify bu stating the date of the photos.
