Lately, I have been getting into using the “surround photo” downloadable function on my s5. It creates photospheres which are like panoramas but you can view up and down. While I was in Hawaii, I looked it up to find some of other peoples and discovered Google has a sharing-social network type feature in maps. I uploaded them to my profile and connected them using the connect images button. You can see them on my profile at https://www.google.com/maps/views/profile/106122192875842363727?gl=us.
One of the coolest functions in Maps Views is the ability to create “constellations”, or maps of connected photos. I made a giant one consisting of around 50 separate spheres at my hotel. You can see it below.
