Photos on Google Maps

I just found a very interesting feature on Google maps that I had never seen before. I opened a new Google page, clicked on “Maps”, typed in a city, and of course the map came up to the right, but on the left, 3 small photos of the area also showed up. Under them was a caption, “More Photos”. I clicked it. That brought up a page with something called Panoramio. Suddenly the map was speckled with tiny photos all over the map. Each one was clickable and came up larger, with a caption of where or what it was. I can’t seem to figure out how to get a screen shot embedded here, unfortunately.

I can see “addiction” written all over this. Looks like some areas have more photos posted than others, but what fun to pull up photos of places I’ve lived before!

    Thanks, Les! When did they hook this into Google maps? I’d never seen it before today.
