I was recently involved in an interesting conversation about a new project that Google hasn't said all that much about so far.
Google has been approaching photographers and photographic agencies, and signing them up as Google Trusted Photographers.
Their mission will be to take panoramic images inside buildings, process them and submit them to Google. It looks like quite a lot of processing work has to be done as images have to be taken at several resolutions and depths and then sown together.
Businesses will pay the photographer for this work and prices likely start at a few hundred quid for a small building. Once the data is submitted to Google Business Photos it eventually will appear behind the "look inside" button found on many Google+ Local listings.
Anyone had any experience of this process and can report any good and/or bad points about it?
