360 Cities - Embeddable Panoramic Images

360 Cities, a panoramic image collection that I've written about in the past, now publishes an embed code with each image. This is a great improvement to the service as it will allow students and teachers greater flexibility when building virtual tours. The imagery in 360 Cities, as you will see in the image below, is much better than that typically found in Google's Street View imagery.

360 Cities offers high quality imagery that students and teachers can use in creating virtual tours. 360 Cities has a Google Earth layer that you can use to view and navigate through the image collections.
