Google Street View launched only a few weeks ago and now there is a new contender on the block in the shape of EveryScape. Using a different camera system Everyscape allows a full 360x180 field of view as well as the placement of those all important hotlinks (thus advertising revenue) in the scene.
The major selling point is however the transition between scenes, using some clever image precessing each scene is linked using a semi 3D zoom providing continuity to the navigation when compared against Street View.
The movie below provides a quick demo of the system.
Take a look at the EveryScape site to try it out yourself, still in beta stage they have Boston, New York and Seattle coming soon.
