Season Greetings and 2008 Achievements

Merry Christmas to one and all. 2008 has been an exciting year for Panoramic Earth, with thousands of 360 panoramas from all over the world added to the site. Here are some of the year's highlights:
  • Growth to over 3400 panoramas, with new images being added on a near-daily basis
  • 360 panoramas from over 40 countries on every continent bar Antartica (though we'd love to see some from there - anybody?)
  • Over 35 contributing panoramic photographers
  • Use of the tours as embedded content in over 100 other places on the internet
  • Incorporation of the Google Earth plugin allowing users to view the images linked to Google Earth from their own browser
  • About 400,000 visitors during 2008
Next year looks to equally exciting as Panoramic Earth grows to become one of the largest collections of cylindrical panoramas on the planet. We intend to introduce a forum for our users and photographers, as well a special directory for panoramic photographers and resources. Hopefully, by the end of 2009 we will have over 7,000 images.

So, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from a content editorial team looking forward to a break!
