Google Maps Views

July 10th, 2014

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

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.
