We made plans several months in advance, and a week after we had paid for the reservations, Pope Francis decides to come to America and stop by Washington to see the WhiteHouse and have a chit-chat with the Obama family.

This 360-degree, hand-held, panorama was taken as we were hearing the Pontiff speak from the WhiteHouse. It was indeed a spectacular ocassion to be in Washington during our nine-day trip.

As you can see from this panorama, Andrea is battling some sunshine, and there are crowds around us trying to go through security to see the Pope.

To geolocate the spot, I leave this exercise to the viever.

    There use to be so much activity on the website, but alas, people only post their GigaPans and then typically walk away only to return to post another. And there was always snapshots created by other users, but not so much anymore. If the pano does not not have sufficient info, nor an adequate tag, then view count will not ever exceed zero.

    It's a real shame that you can't see this or indeed any other recent 360 in Google Earth via the gigapan site any more. However, I am working on a do-it-yourself method. Watch this space (or better kilgore.org.uk) for details.
