Don Bain's 360° Panoramas

Welcome to my website! 
It presents a geographically-oriented collection of 15,000 interactive 360° panoramas, the product of more than twenty years of travel and photography. 

With this site you can virtually explore landscapes ranging from the Arctic tundra in Alaska and Canada to the tropical shores of Mexico and Hawaii, from the California coast ​eastwards across the mountains, deserts, and plains to the Hundredth Meridian, and along the Gulf of Mexico coast to Florida and the Dry Tortugas. More than 70 national parks are covered. Or you can focus on historic sites such as the Spanish missions and the Oregon Trail, or on cities such as San Francisco, San Diego, and New Orleans.

Simply select a viewpoint – a 360° panorama – and you can look all the way around, even straight up and down. I like to say that it is the next best thing to being there! 

This is a non-profit project that grew out of my background in academic geography, computer technology, and landscape photography.  I have made it available to the public for its educational and artistic value.
