360 Panoramic of London

Thought some of you might like these.

This one is from the top of the BT Tower:
BT Tower 360 Panorama of London

And here are lots of interesting comments from the site I found it on about things to find: This 320-gigapixel snap of London is size of Buckingham Palace ? The Register Forums

And this one is from the top of the new Shard building (tallest in Europe) and in my opinion a bit better. Plus it has all the landmark info:

Thanks for posting the links, truly amazing view of London, I've spent a good while trying work what and where the landmarks are.

Interesting stuff. Never found the "Buzby" characters in the first one, and the sound in the second one was a bit over the top (but the video intro really made a difference in presentation).

I agree that the one shot from the Shard is a bit better as a pano, perhaps because that one isn't multi-resolution. Yes, it takes longer to load and is slower to zoom, but at least there isn't that jarring difference in contrast (due to oversharpening) between resolution layers like in the BT one. I know the folks at 360 cities, so I'll see if there is a reason for that...
