We are very proud to announce that the incredible 360 Cities panoramas – the world’s largest and fastest-growing collection of immersive panoramic imagery — are going to be indexed by the Read/Write world, with many available for Creative Commons reuse, under the control of the original photographers
The more than 70,000 professionally shot panoramas of the world’s landmarks, natural wonders, historic buildings, and places of interest will join forces with the incredible imagery assets of Bing Maps and the Microsoft Photosynth community to create a rich trellis for the Read/Write World.
“Bing is a great partner for 360 Cities” said Jeffrey Martin, CEO of 360 Cities. “Bing has created beautiful visual experiences on the web, and shares our passion for high quality imagery. Our network of photographers is very excited to be working with Bing to bring their amazing work to such a wide audience.”
“The 360 Cities panoramic photography is just gorgeous,” said Blaise Agüera y Arcas, architect of the Read/Write world. “It’s exciting to see this community’s beautiful imagery linked into an ecosystem where it’ll be able to connect to and augment the growing corpus of geo-linked media we’re indexing at Bing.
