Google Debuts ‘Views’ for Adding 360-Degree Photos to Google Maps

 In iMobile3

Google launched a community site called Views, allowing users to easily share 360-degree panoramic photos to Google Maps, on Tuesday.

The images, which Google calls “photo spheres” are plotted on Maps and geotagged. Normal photos show just a single viewpoint while photo spheres welcome others to freely look up, down, and all around to explore the entire scene. Photo spheres can be created with the camera on an Android phone running version 4.2 (Jelly Bean) or higher and you can also use your own DSLR camera.
