I have compiled a new layer for the World Wide Panorama, including the latest event Atmosphere, with more than 3200 Quicktime VR panoramas. You can also find the Placemark file at http://bilder.sinnfrei.at/googleearth/.

If you like to find out more about panorama photography visit the PanoTools Wiki which is a good starting point for this matter.

Your placemark for futuristic living over water in Toronto, Ontario is wrong. That is Ontario PLace. It is an entertanment complex which has a marina, concerts and imax movies. There are no housing units there. At all. Ever.

Re: World Wide Panorama Moaguten 11/9/05 1:17 PM
I think it is fair to say that a lot of the placemarks for the panoramas are wrong. It is not your fault, but the coordinates on the World Wide Panorama web page are not to be trusted!
They are all aproximations.
The images are still interesting, and at least you are in the correct country! :-)

If you find some missaligned placemarks, please send me the correct placemark, so that I can correct it in my database.

All the things in this post are going to be better. I think, how wrongness ever it includes, people can correct them. We should keep that many of them are not at their exact coordinates. But it is better than its nonexistence. The panoramas are exciting with all those people within the frames.

Thanks wuz.

Juste to tell you the market Place of Liège you assigned on Googgle Earth is not at the right place (I'm living near Liège):
it's here: 50°38'43.04° N 5°34'25.95" E
an not at 50°39'59.89° N 5°34'59.88" E

Thanks for the Panaroma it's really great.

A interesting list for resources is also on the worldwide panorama page

Most of the placemarks by "wuz" are quite off.
But you can assume it is somewhere not too many miles off.

I'd just like to point out that the site entitled "18th Century Pipe Organ in San Agustin Church Church by Fung Yu" is in the wrong place. As placed, San Agustin Church is incorrectly placed in the Sta Cruz district of the City of Manila when it should actually be placed inside the walled city of Intramuros, south of the Pasig River.

Your notes on Jeddah are somewhat inaccurate.

Tourist visas are available.

Most of the 'restrictions' you mention are mere social conventions that are increasingly disregarded.

Westerners have never covered hair or faces, or been obliged to.

I could go on, but won't.

I'm sure it was an honest attempt based on information available on the net, but it comes across as rather predjuduced. Much of what is commonly reported about Saudi Arabia is based on how things were several decades ago. Things have changed!

Hope you can update.

Re: World Wide Panorama (updated^3) BrianHawley 7/16/06 11:27 PM
hi wuz.

apologies if i have done you wrong, but your last post was in 2005 as far as I can see.

if you are really interested in quality could you please have a look at your community layer pin for jeddah?

a few persons (i don't say i share that opinion) have said it is racist and grossly offensive - and i'm talking americans here, not saudis

more to the point, without getting into too much detail, most of it is just completely WRONG on a factual basis - as any expatriate living in jeddah will tell you - and i'm sure you do not want to come across as bigoted or misinformed.

i would hope at least you can remove the bit about being 'two-faced'. maybe that's not quite what you meant, but it can read like that.

jeddah is the most liberal of all saudi cities and not at all as you portray it.

thanks for responding.
Re: World Wide Panorama (updated^3) missyles 7/17/06 2:47 PM
Hi wuz,
Amazing panoramas, but I'm afraid it's another correction. Milk River Square in Tianjin, China is in the wrong place, see attached. I'll write it below just in case the placemark doesn't work - never done it before...

39 degrees 05'17.50" N
117 degrees 12'05.56" E

And it's called Silver River not Milk River. Some dodgy translation going on there!
Re: World Wide Panorama (updated^3) Paul_Denize 7/30/06 9:08 PM
Sorry but New Zealand is not part of Australia.

Brooklyn, Wellington, New Zealand has as much place under Australia as Washington does under under IRAQ. Though on all accounts perhaps thats a bad analogy - there ARE probably more Americans in IRAQ than New Zealanders in Australia.
ALL UK PLACES WRONG the1truejames 8/8/06 3:17 AM
This is pretty serious - all the panoramas in the UK for which I know the actual location are some way off... It's not really acceptable to just chuck this stuff out when it has no accuracy. Please either remove all the UK panoramas or correct them.

There must be something we can do about the abyssmal amount of incorrect placements to be found on Google Earth.
As I introduce ppl to Google Earth, the very first thing I mention is that NO Google Earth placement marks are to be trusted!

Time and again, I find gross errors. Ludicrous errors.
Backed up by documentation such as the responses associated with this particular poster, as a prime example.

I live on the Caribbean island of Barbados,
yet I find mere TOURISTS posting over my island,
and about 30% of their postings are incorrect.

FOR THE GOOD OF GOOGLE EARTH'S DYING REPUTATION FOR ACCURACY/INACCURACY,
something must be done, before the whole thing becomes entirely farcical!

As a parting bit of advice... TRUST NO GOOGLE EARTH PLACEMARK.!

Der richtige Standort ist ca. 1,5 km nord-östlich ( 52°24'50.95"N/ 13°19'43.17"E).
Good Luck Re: ALL UK PLACES WRONG Aplmac 10/23/06 2:33 PM
In my experience, these incorrect placemarks will stay.
No-one will correct them, or even take the time to adjust them,
over to their right location.

No-one will remove them entirely, despite all our protests.
Don't trust GE placemarks! - like my signature says!!

Re: World Wide Panorama (updated^4) wuz 11/20/06 5:14 PM
I have now added all your corrections + 200 other edits. The new file also contains additional 500 panoramas from the latest 2 events.

I also like to thank you all for the help to improve this file but if you send me corrections please include the name of the panorama + the new coordinates. It's very hard to find a place "50km west" or something. This would really make my editing easier and would simplify the process to improve the file. Thx.

MfG, Wuz.

Wuz.

You have placed Wukoki ruin in the middle of downtown Flagstaff. Arizona. It's not there. It's out northeast of Flagstaff in Wupatki National Monument. Check the Wupatki Web site or email me for the coordinates.

The post 'an island in the polder' is completelt in the wrong place (approx. 150km to far south).
Please remove or get it right.
Re: World Wide Panorama (updated^4) bodenas 12/10/06 7:37 AM
These are the correct coordinates for the "The Turning Torso by Mats Persson", Old Docks in Malmö, Sweden
World Wide Panorama: "The Original WWP"

55°36'47.76"N
12°58'34.84"E

Your coordinates point to the middle of the Gustav Adolfs Torg in Malmö, Sweden.

These Panormas are fantastic! I spend hours just looking through them. They are a fantastic tool for remembering places you have been. Thanks.

Hi,
Your post is much to the West. I suggest a long of -9.129

The comments that you and others have made in this thread and many others regarding the sloppy work in GE is a sad fact of life.
I am often amazed at the shear number of placements in the one spot, all pointing to the same thing!!
I would have thought that the moderators would peruse the threads or even the GE world now and then to clear out the rubbish.

The fact that someone made the comment about NZ-Australia does not surprise me, I once told a lady in North Carolina that we lived at 38 south - the same distance south from the equator as Sacremento is north of it.
"Oh yeah? So where the hell is Sacremento - what country?"

I was also asked if we were affected by Hurricane Katrina here in NZ by another person. I told her that the only source of big winds round here lately had been Helen.

At least GE gets people out into the world and hopefully a little wiser - despite the gross errors.
They may even find that Wellington has not yet been blown out to sea and further from Oz.

Re: World Wide Panorama (updated^5) wuz 5/19/07 1:08 PM
I have uploaded an updated version of the file with 700 more panoramas and all corrections sent to me so far. Thx for your help. It may not be clear to all people here that I just compile the list of the submitted GPS data. I try to be as accurate as possible and double check the data but sometimes the photographers simple submit wrong data that looks fine on the first sight. If you like to imporve the list and you find an error please send me the correct coordiantes, thx.

MfG, Thomas.

Your canal street panorama is shown in the wrong place, it shows that it is in Brattleboro Vermont opposed to NY...

Prospect Cottage: correct location SiGarb 6/5/07 4:26 PM
Bruce Hemming's placemark is well adrift. Looking at his panorama, I calculate that he took the photo standing at 50 degrees 55'20.83" N and 0 degrees 58'35.05"E, standing by the side of the road, a short way southeast of the cottage.

Prospect Cottage itself is 50 degrees 55'21.16" N and 0 degrees 58'33.58" E.

Re: Wrong location, time and again? - ad infinitum?? Daniel_Ellsworth 8/24/07 4:40 PM
I couldn't agree more. I live in Mexico, do some mapping and travel with my gps always. Time and again I find placemarks wildly off - even 150 miles off! I'd be happy to correct them if I knew how. Even INEGI (the mexico equivalent to USGS) is off (though 100 meters or so) on their published digital maps. Some are dead on and some are way off. Their quality control is terrible. In this day and age of GPS it seems google should mandate GPS submitals before authorizing a placemark and then also have a secondary independent source confirm it.
Re: World Wide Panorama (updated^5) SD_moonboy89 6/25/09 4:50 AM
I noticed a mistake with the coordinates for a village in Serbia. When I tip-in Selevac, Serbia I get the wrong village. The correct coordinates are 44° 29′ 26" 20° 52′ 15" you can check it on wikipedia. The coordinates in Google Earth are 44° 26′ 52.49" 20° 44′ 52.59".

It would be nice if you could correct the mistake. Thank you.
