Digital Maps and Imagery: 360 Degree Location Views and Virtual Walks from SuperTour

Digital Maps and Imagery: 360 Degree Location Views anb Virtual Walks from SuperTour
At first SuperTour might look like just another site offering hotel reservations. However, it's not. Along with the chance to book your room, this database offers 360 virtual views of the location and nearby surroundings. Adena at AllPoints links to this interview who says, "SuperTour combines the 500-foot map view with a human level walking experience." SuperTour uses proprietary technology called Panamorph. From the interview, "SuperTour's proprietary technology is called Panamorph and it allows users to rapidly create and edit photorealistic 3D scenes from 2D images in a fraction of the time and effort normally required to create 3D graphics." At the moment, "tours" are available for:
+ Las Vegas, NV (Preview)
+ Miami Beach, FL
+ The Bahamas
+ San Juan, Puerto Rico
+ Pisa, Italy
+ With more on the way (NYC, LA, SF, Seattle, Boston, Waikiki Beach)

Thanks to AllPoints for the news tip.
