Many modern cameras, and almost every Android device, are capable of 360° photography. Interactive panoramas and aerial pictures are a growing trend among both amateur and professional photographers. They show the world from a different perspective and are incredibly interesting to look at. There are groups and projects dedicated to 360° photography, one of which is AirPano that has published hundreds of aerial panoramas.
AirPano was created by a team of photo enthusiasts from Russia. They travel all over the globe and take pictures from helicopters, airplanes, hot air balloons, and even dirigibles. All their works were put in an extensive gallery that was uploaded to their website. There are over 2000 aerial panoramas there so if you've got a few moments to spare, make sure to drop by and satisfy your Reisefieber feeling.
