360 Cities Now Available as Google Earth Layer

360 Cities, a provider of high quality panoramic views of cities around the world, is now available as a Google Earth layer. This layer will enable Google Earth users to explore the high quality panoramic photography of 360 Cities inside Google Earth.

Applications for Education
The new 360 Cities layer for Google Earth provides another great resource for creating virtual fly-over tours in Google Earth. One way that I can see this new layer being used is to have students create stories about traveling somewhere far from home. Then have the students create a fly-over tour to match the story.
