Panoramic Photo Sharing at ViewAt
Posted on September 29, 2007
A new photo sharing service called ViewAt allows users to share cool panoramic photographs. There are already lots of panoramic photographs on the website you can view. You can find the images by using the interactive map on ViewAt's homepage. You can also find photos by clicking on the author's name. Webware says the service uses the Flash Panorama Player.
The service employs the Flash Panorama Player, which manages to serve up a similar experience to the Quicktime VR functionality of yore, but uses the same plug-in you've got installed to watch YouTube videos. Each of the shots on viewAT is geotagged as well, letting you sort and browse through shots by country. There's also a mini map that opens up below each shot to let you see if there are others nearby. Other users can comment on the shot, as well as read up on the equipment and technique that was used to capture it.If you are interested in creating a panoramic view be sure to read the faq.
