360 Panoramas of the Brisbane Floods

Panedia - Brisbane Flooding Panoramas

I've been watching the news reports about the current flooding in Australia but nothing I have seen has quite had the emotional impact of this Google Map of 360 degree panoramas shot in Brisbane today.

The map includes 40 interactive panoramas of the flooding in Brisbane that can be viewed directly from the map. The flood has affected more than 25,000 properties in the Brisbane area. Queensland Premier Anna Bligh says it is "the worst natural disaster in our history and possibly in the history of our nation."

These interactive panoramas give a first person view of the floods and are therefore able to convey incredibly effectively the impact that the flooding has had on the city.

Have a look at the panoramas and then donate to the Flood Relief Appeal.
