    A world wide panorama shoot on March 20, 2004

    On Saturday, March 20, more than 180 photographers in 40 countries around the world celebrated the Equinox by creating VR panoramas. This site showcases the results of their efforts.

    The event was sponsored by the Geography Computing Facility at the University of California Berkeley. This site is hosted by The Geo-Images Project. This is a non-commercial project, done simply to create enthusiasm for VR photography, and provide an outlet for our collective creativity.

    Looks like there were different techniques used on several pans - the ones that let you see above and below require a special set up with a lens and curved mirror to get the all the info.

    Cool stuff, though :D
