Panoramio is a geolocation-oriented photo sharing website. Currently, some of the photos uploaded to the site can be accessed as a layer in Google Earth and Google Maps, with new photos being added at the end of every month. The site's goal is to allow Google Earth users to learn more about a given area by viewing the photos that other users have taken at that place. The website is available in several languages.

History

Joaquín Cuenca and Eduardo Manchón, the creators of Panoramio.

Panoramio was started in the summer of 2005 by Joaquín Cuenca Abela and Eduardo Manchón Aguilar, two Spanish entrepreneurs. It was officially launched on October 3, 2005, and by March 19, 2007, it had archived over 1 million user submitted photographs.[1] Three months later, on June 27, 2007, the number of photos reached two million.[2] After a further four months, on October 25, 2007, the number of archived photos reached five million.[3]

On May 30, 2007, Google announced plans to acquire the website,[4] and Panoramio was acquired by Google on July 2007.[5]

Google Maps API has recently been used by some other websites like Everytrail.com, Globalmotion.com, twip.org, Wolpy.com and Wikiexplora to allow users upload and geotag their photos.

Features

Organization

Panoramio asks users to organize images using tags (a form of metadata), which allow searchers to find images concerning a certain topic such as place name or subject matter. Panoramio was also an early website to implement tag clouds, which provide access to images tagged with the most popular keywords. The website also hosts a list of world famous sites.

Images that have (or are perceived to have) as their central subject people, machines, vehicles or anything within the interiors of structures, or depict public events such as fairs or concerts, are excluded from the GoogleEarth layer, as are any potentially controversial images. No waivers are granted even if the images are historical or otherwise vintage in nature. Images judged to be too creative or "artsy" in concept might also be excluded from GoogleEarth regardless of other requirements met.

Interaction and compatibility

Licensing

Panoramio allows photo contributors to choose the license type of their photos. Contributors choose to keep all the rights as author or to give some of them using Creative Commons licenses.

WordGame

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
