Panoramas that are selected for 360Cities can also be selected for Google Earth after our review. 360Cities is now included in the default Photos layer in Google Earth.
Cylindrical panoramas (panoramas that are not fully spherical) will not be selected for Google Earth. Currently Google Earth doesn't accept these panoramas. Once it does we will try to push all good-quality cylindrical panoramas hosted on 360Cities to Google Earth. They will have a lower ranking than spherical panoramas so they will always be a bit less visible than spherical images.
These panoramas will NOT be selected for Google Earth:
Technical aspects of images that are NOT permitted:
Are you waiting too long for your panorama to be reviewed?
Get a paid account to support our review team. Paid accounts have a higher priority in the review queue (PRO and COMPANY accounts have the top priority). We guarantee the review for all paid account panoramas within 7 days but usually this happens within 1-2 days!Learn more about the review process.
How long does it take before my panoramas appear in Google Earth?
Each of your published panoramas is reviewed before it appears in Google Earth. This can take a week or sometimes more (in rare cases 1-2 months) if you have a free account since we are giving priority to paid accounts. The newly reviewed panoramas are sent to Google Earth usually every day but sometimes the update is delayed.
Can a panorama be changed (moved on map, its title or description edited or switched with a new image) after it has been published to Google Earth?
Yes but it will have to be reviewed again which could result in disappearing from Google Earth temporarily. Learn how to upload a better version of your panorama.
What to do if my panorama has not been selected for Google Earth?
If your panorama hasn't been selected and you are sure that the photo follows guidelines (see above), you can ask a question in our forum and we will review the panorama again.
I have clients who want to be on Google Earth. Can you guarantee placement in Google Earth? Can I?
We currently do not sell placement in Google Earth. As a member of 360Cities, you also may not sell placement in Google Earth. However, if someone pays you to make panoramas, and the images fit our criteria to be published in Google Earth (see above), they will be published there.
Your panoramas can have these statuses:
Google Earth status: Selected.
The review team looked at your panorama and found out that it is appropriate for Google Earth. It will appear in Google Earth when the next synchronization happens.
Google Earth status: Not selected.
The review team looked at your panorama and found out that is not appropriate for Google Earth. This can be for a number of reasons (see below).
Google Earth status: Not yet revieved.
Your panorama is still in the review queue.
