Forget Static Street Level Imagery, Check out What Immersive Media is Building: 360-degree views of Surroundings
Sure, Pages Jaunes (cities in France and Spain), A9, and now MSN Live Local all offer very cool street-level imagery for various places but check out what Canada's Immersive Media is doing for 25 U.S. cities. Hal Reid from Directions Magazine does a great job summarizing. He writes, "[Immersive Media] involves 11 cameras taking 360 degree imagery in real time, all merged into a single image. The imagery is geo-referenced; you can measure how big or how far apart things are. If you are doing anything related to real estate, city planning, etc., you need to see this." ResourceShelf agrees.
