Google Adds Panoramio Picture Browsing to Street View

by , Comments

If you love to travel but the economy or your own budget have you staying home, traveling virtually can be a fun way to still see the sights. Street View on Google Maps tempts our wanderlust, and now they've enhanced that temptation by adding Panoramio picture browsing.

Panoramio, which was acquired by Google in 2007, is a photo-sharing site that focuses on photographs of locations and points of interest around the world.

To see the photos, when you're in Street View on Google Maps, click on the box in the top right corner labeled "User Photos." That will launch a visual menu of photos that streams across the top.

The more popular the place you're looking at in Street View (think Leaning Tower of Pisa or the Coliseum), the more likely you are to browse a lot of photos from Panoramio.

Here's a video by the Google LatLong team showing how to use the new feature:
