Google now allows you to share your travel experiences with others and, in return, explore places around the world through the eyes of other photographers more collaboratively with Panoramio Groups. “This new feature lets you create a sub-community within Panoramio around a topic you’re passionate about, so you can easily engage with like-minded photographers and hobbyists,” informs Gerard Sanz, Panoramio Community Manager.
In short, you upload photos to Panoramio and position them on the map. Pictures uploaded to Panoramio can be featured in the “Photos” layer of Google Earth and Google Maps, which means you can share your passions through photographs more collaboratively with Panoramio Groups.
Sanz explains that “To share your own interests and passions through photos, hop over to Panoramio and create your own group or join an existing one from the Groups Directory.
You can show off your photos of your favorite restaurant, the most beautiful sunset you’ve seen, the latest lighthouse you’ve visited, or the cutest dog from each continent. Whatever it is, try starting a discussion about your favorite topics and share what matters to you with others.”
