Introducing Google Maps Photo Tours

Google has introduced an amazing new Photo Tours feature on Google Maps. When you use the WebGL version of Google Maps (try it in Chrome) you can view some amazing Photo Tours of famous locations around the world.

Photo Tours are available for more than 15,000 popular sites around the world, try St. Mark’s Basilica in Italy or the Half Dome in Yosemite. When available a link to the photo tour will appear in the left side-panel.  Alternatively, if you’re browsing the map and click on the label for a particular landmark, the info window that appears will indicate if a photo tour is available.

This map  shows the locations of all the currently available Photo Tours.

Is there any way to create a Phototour using a set of your own photographs or to prompt Google into creating a phototour of a specific location?

The concept is similar to Microsoft's Photosynth but the results are far superior
