360 Degree Panoramas of 275 World Heritage Sites

Patrimonium-mundi.org is undertaking an ambitious project to capture and share 360 degree panoramas of all of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Currently, Patrimonium-mundi.org is up to 275 panoramic images of World Heritage sites. Visitors can rotate all of the images and some of the images allow you to zoom in and zoom out to look at the details of World Heritage sites. You can locate panoramas by browsing the world map or by searching for a site in the search box.

Applications for Education
Patrimonium-mundi.org could be a excellent supplement to your geography lessons. Students could explore the images on their own or you could use the images as conversation starters in your lessons.
