View At - The World in Panoramic

Virtual tours and panoramic views can be a great way to move geography lessons beyond simple "studying a map" exercises. View At provides panoramic views of dozens of notable places from around the world. The panoramic views can be viewed on the View At website or viewed in Google Earth. Although they offer different views, in many ways View At is similar to the 360 Cities panoramic views.

Applications for Education
View At, like 360 Cities, could be a good tool for supplementing geography, history, and culture lessons. Students can individually explore the images in a way that is not possible with textbook photographs.
