Highlights also include anything and everything from Zion National Park, because that place is totally fucking awesome.

Beautiful site, but I'm sad that Martin van Hemert's introduction video isn't more dynamic. I'll give them credit for the depth of field with the lantern and the glass of lemonade being out of focus, emphasizing the DOF, but a still camera angle? I was really hoping they'd pan around Martin while he was talking.

why does dragging on these panoramas work exactly opposite from the way that google streetview does? beautiful, yes, but every time i want to move something to the center, i end up sliding it offscreen. ugh.

Cedar breaks is pretty amazing. I almost hit an elk there about 3 months ago.

Oh Utah, if only you would change your horrible liquor laws.

360 degrees != 3D. Am I missing something?

www.3d-360.com has actual stereoscopic panoramas you can view on a 3d tv or monitor or oculus rift.

I want somebody to make Nebraska3D which will just be a blue skybox over an infinite cornfield

Yeah, prior to actually visiting said site I thought that Bonnevile in 3D is sorta a weird thing. I mean, the entire reason that it's a known place is because it's actually a very two dimensional location.

But the pictures of the sky are nice too.
