360° Panorama is a unit of imagery on 360 Cities. 

Short name: Panorama or Pano 

All images on 360 Cities 360-degree spherical panoramas. Some people call it VR photography (that's "Virtual Reality"). They are made from multiple photos that cover every direction from a single viewpoint. These photos were taken at nearly the same time, and joined (stitched) together with great precision on a computer. When this is done properly the result is a completely seamless, smooth image (without borders between photos), which can be viewed in any direction. You can even zoom.
