Finding Photo Spheres with Google Maps
Android's popular Photo Sphere camera feature allows anyone to create their own 360º panoramas, or photo spheres, and share them publicly on Google Maps.
SphereShare.net provides a nice interface to explore Photo Spheres shared with the SphereShare Android app. The site includes a handy gallery view that allows you to explore the most recently added, most popular and most viewed Photo Spheres. It also includes a Google Map that allows you to search for uploaded Photo Spheres by location.
You can also explore Photo Spheres on Google's own Photo Sphere Map. Google's map allows you to view all public Photo Spheres or you can even view a map showing only your own panoramic images taken with Photo Sphere.
