Google has just released the new Google Maps Photo Tours, a new feature that enables you to visit landmarks around the world through a 3d-like experience that is automatically generated from public contributed photos!

There are already more than 15.000 photo tours available around the globe, ranging from famous landmark buildings to iconic sceneries and natural wonders of our planet. This is a new service from google that will undoubtedly bring new aspects to the travel related side of google maps. We are looking forward in seeing it used in the API in the future.

Please note that using photo tours requires Google Maps with WebGL. Check out some photo tours favorites or visit this map to browse all the available tours.
