Google Zurich Photowalk

It is now one week since we hosted together with +Thomas Leuthard and +David Castro the Google Zurich Photowalk. 130 photographers from the Panoramio and G+ photo communities got together to create fantastic content that you can find in the following links:

On Panoramio
To spice the walk a bit, we created a small contest and I am now posting here the best 15 images that we picked from the submissions. It was not easy to decide as you could see for the quality of the photos from the event!

Easily snap your photos to a location in Panoramio

[Cross-Posted from Google Lat Long Blog]

Earlier this year we improved the uploader tool in Panoramio to make the process faster and more intuitive. Since then, members of the Panoramio photo-sharing community have been simply dragging and dropping their photos to the locations where they were taken, and working together to create a world map of beautiful images.

Today, we’re announcing some improvements to help you even more easily geo-tag your photos in Panoramio. You can now snap your photos to a place on the map. When searching for your photo location, you’ll see a list of suggested places where your photo may have been taken, and you can click “Snap to this place” to select the right location. We’ve also added the ability for users to indicate that a photo was taken indoors. These additional details about where a photo was taken provide all users with more useful information and context.




If you’re not familiar with Panoramio and how it works, get a sense for this powerful user tool by checking out the brief video below. Panoramio is a community site for photos of various places, with the option to share and explore the photos in Google Maps and Google Earth



Enjoy the improved features in Panoramio and we look forward to seeing more of your photos.
