Panoramic Earth links panoramas taken worldwide to interactive maps. Alongside each picture is local and travel information. The images are contributed by a growing number of photographers providing an encyclopedia of panoramas and information answering several questions:
| Where am I | What am I looking at | What information is available | What else is nearby | How do I get here |
As well as providing information to the public, Panoramic Earth promotes photographers that submit panoramas to the site and also promotes travel destinations, attractions and hotels. Submitting photographers may also see some financial return for their contributions.
The resulting virtual tours are made available for other websites to use as embedded content following a simple procedure. This means that any location featured on the site may also be found in other websites too. Thus we become a means for syndicating panoramas and information across the internet in a unique and dynamic way. There is no other resource quite like Panoramic Earth.
Most of the panoramas within Panoramic Earth are linked to Google Maps. Some of the images (notably those from ski resorts) use piste maps and Java based technology from MAI Technology to display the images.
