    streetscape panoramas

    I found an interesting site that uses 360° views to look at cities/places. Most of the sites are from europe, and almost all are centered around pedestrian transit areas. In order to see it, it helps to have a fast connection and a fast computer too. Dial-uppers need not apply, sorry.

    Click the magic text to see what I'm talking about.

    In general its just a neat site with pano's from around the world. Toronto's there, Hannover Ger., Copenhagen, SanFran mt Everest, Paris.

    Wow! This got me sidetracked for about an hour. Also found this site, which focuses on the western U.S. and Canada:

    Good thing I'm not at work.
