Hey,

Was het reeds bekend dat google ook user-submitted foto's in streetview
gebruikt<http://www.panoramio.com/blog/explore-more-with-user-photos-in-street-view/>
?
Ik had het zelf nog niet voorbij zien komen op de mailinglist, en staat niet
aangekondigd op de veelgelezen google blogs.
Schijnbaar gebeurt het vooral op plekken waar veel gebruikers-foto's op
streetview-locaties beschikbaar zijn, zoals bij
toeristische<http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=&layer=c&cbll=40.758494,-73.985126&cbp=12,256.7225997768314,,0,-19.896715140577697&ie=UTF8&om=1&panoid=DK9Dj8cynpLwgcof7otkBA&ll=40.758494,-73.985126&spn=0,359.88945&z=13>attracties.

'[this feature is available] Anywhere, really, where Street View is
available and where users have contributed lots of high-quality photos; of
course, this usually is near famous landmarks but you never know where
you’ll discover more to see.'
'Just contribute your best photos to
Panoramio<http://www.panoramio.com/upload>and remember to geo-tag
them. Google’s image-matching algorithms will
analyze them at some point to see if they are also a good match for a Street
View location.'

Impressive, no?
