Panoramio Widget API - Display photos from Panoramio on your own website

We are happy to announce the launch of the new Panoramio Widget API. With this new feature that we are just releasing, it will be easier than ever to show your pictures of places to the world.
The Panoramio Widget API is a JavaScript library that provides easy-to-use graphical UI elements and search capabilities so that you can show Panoramio photos on your web site. In addition, we provide ready-made HTML templates that you can embed in a web site using iframe tags so you can take advantage of the Widget API without needing to write any JavaScript.
There are many places where Panoramio pictures are displayed such as Google Earth, Google Maps, Google Search, Place Page, etc. With Panoramio Widget API you can now display the photos from Panoramio on your blog or website. A great example of this is the following Slideshow with Panoramio photos containing the tag “sand”:
