We have been playing a bit with the streetview phone app for creating our own photospheres. The cool thing about these is that we can add them directly into Google Map entries. Check out this view, for example, of the Architecture Quad behind our building. Definitely not ready for prime time yet, but it is a start. We are also seeing a demand, with several hundred views over the weekend without much advertisement.
Our long term goal will be to use these test photos to build up our expertise so that we can tackle a new version of the campus virtual tour site. Combining these panoramas with the Campus Bird campus map framework we intend to give the tours a much needed facelift.
