EveryScape takes you where Google Can not.

Inside buildings.

For the 1st time ever, web surfer's can see inside buildings before visiting them.


Today we saw the launch of a technology demo by EveryScape, a mapping company from Waltham, Massachusetts, which had been operating in stealth mode. The company uses 360 degree panoramic photos and Google Maps to create (mostly) street-level 3D tours of entire neighborhoods.


Google with Streetview, but EveryScape is chasing it and has raised a new round of venture capital. Both are allowing users to visit places they’ve never seen and to get a good idea of what it is to walk down a street in a distant place.

One big difference is that EveryScape captures pictures of the real world by stitching together normal camera pictures, while Google sends trucks with special spherical cameras that capture 3-D views. With its approach EveryScape can show both outside and inside buildings, and it can also use photos from its own users.

The company got good publicity when Intel CEO Paul Otellini demoed the site in his keynote speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. Waltham, Mass.,-based EveryScape has created a web-based viewer that shows you photo-realistic images of real-world scenery and allows users to zoom through the images, resulting in an experience where it feels like you’re moving through a 3-D world. It showed the site off last year and has now added new locations.

You can walk down city streets and explore the interiors of local buildings, landmarks and businesses — and then leave an annotation. The locations are digital replicas of real sites. You can check out the inside of Fenway Park in Boston, walk on the Great Wall of China, ski down a slope at Aspen, or click on tabs that show you night life or hotels.

And instead of dispatching a fleet of cars to scour major cities and capture snapshots the way Google does, the company relies on independent contractors recruited through its Web site. Trained to operate specialized equipment, these "destination ambassadors" are assigned regions and are paid per mile to map.

EveryScape differs from the 3D options offered by Microsoft and Google in two main ways: it requires no additional browser plugins (just Flash), and it uses panoramic photos taken by humans. The latter means that users cannot change the axis of each scene, or even change the location from where the scene is viewed. But it also means the scenes are actually photo realistic, instead of almost photo realistic.

EveryScape's technology also does something else that neither Google nor Microsoft offers: indoor panoramic scenes. EveryScape can theoretically take you inside businesses, restaurants, and a museums, allowing you to really virtually visit every part of a city or town.

Navigation around EveryScape panoramic images is easy. Click and drag to spin the scene in any direction (with a full 360 degree range of motion, both left and right as well as up and down), and click the green buttons to advance to the next scene. Clicking on the Google Map also brings you directly to the scene of that area. EveryScape also has the ability to embed marketing messages directly into their maps. In the technology demo, they've embedded messages on a few buildings pointing out business names and providing direct links to that business' website.

Earning up to $10 for every street mile & commission whenever a business to have its interiors photographed, and they need help. It is a big world !
