I decided that Google maps satellite view was not interesting enough. So I started doing drone sphere photos on my motorcycle travels. This one is from Waterville, Pa. If you click on my name you can then view other posted photos.

It keeps an old man out of trouble.

Very nice. Can you tell us what make/model drone/camera you used?

The drone is a DJI Mini 2. The drone and app do all the stitching and final composition. I find that the clearer the day the better the resolution. Posting on Street Maps takes longer than taking the picture.

Just to make everyone aware. The photo can be rotated 360 around and 180 up and down. If you look straight down, I'm on the basketball court. Picture was taken at about 300 ft.

Yeh that's me. I try to keep the drone directly overhead when I'm in unknown territory.

This was shot yesterday at KW&S Railroad. Kempton has some very nice facilities.
