I bought a 360 degree Ricoh Theta camera about a year ago. I’ve enjoyed using it to add 360 degree photos to user-contributed photos on Google Maps. Apparently, they are popular for I received this email from Google today:
You’re a top photographer on Google Maps. You’ve just accomplished what very few people have done: reached 2,000,000 photo views. Congratulations on the amazing accomplishment.
It’s nice to learn my images are helpful (or at least seen).
