Tell Me What I'm Looking At
PeakFinder allows users to generate a 360° panoramic sketch naming all the visible peaks and hills in view from any location.
To create a panorama users just need to select the required location using a Google Map. After the location is selected PeakFinder creates a a 360° panoramic sketch of the view from that location. Users can zoom in and pan the panorama.
HeyWhatsThat also uses Google Maps to create panoramic sketches showing names of visible peaks. HeyWhatsThat allows the user to click on highlighted peaks to view the name and see the peak's location on a Google Map. The map also displays the distance and the direction to the peak.
Generate a Panorama lets you click on a Google Map and create a bird's eye representation of the view from that location.
To generate your own view you just need to click on a location on the map. You can then drag a polyline to choose the direction you wish to view and you can also adjust the span of the view.
