Make sure to visit this site – AirPano – to experience nothing like you have ever seen before.
AirPano is a noncommercial project focused on high resolution 3D aerial panoramas of some of the most interesting views on the planet. It continues to amaze me the direction we are going with this stuff and I feel we are only at the beginning. I would never had thought fifteen years ago I would be able to set at my computer (or now called a Tablet or Smartphone) and see the world in the manner and clarity that I am experiencing it now.
Normally, they shoot from a helicopter but sometimes they use light jets, dirigibles, air balloons and radio-controlled helicopter models.
During nearest 2 years the Airpano team is going to shoot the aero-panoramas and create the virtual tours of the most significant and interesting cities and corners of our planet. They already have created more than 250 panoramas which show more than 60 places of our world; all available for view on their website. AirPano is a world leader in number of exhibited places, quantity of aerial panoramas as well as in art and technical quality of the creative works. Every week they present a new virtual tour on their website.
At present time they have shot about 70 places (most panoramas have already been represented on our site and some material is still waiting for the processing):
