I've been wondering for years about the occasionally very inconsistent and non-transparent approach of Panoramio to the selection of pictures for Google Earth. So far I didn't consider it a big deal, just one of these odd things around. That view changed today when I coincidentally realized that THIS picture - among others - was silently removed from GE a couple of weeks ago.

So here's my question to Panoramio folks:

?????????????????????????????????????????????

DO YOU GUYS AT PANORAMIO HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO BUT REMOVE VERY POPULAR PICTURES FROM GOOGLE EARTH???

?????????????????????????????????????????????

Cheers, --michael

For the topic of Google Earth aproved photographs, should be considered that this application has mainly a geographical character. I think that Panoramio was created as a ground level photographic complement of the satellite images; furthermore Panoramio users have surpassed this original orientation with photographs of more creative freedom. Perhaps the Panoramio Groups are a resource to allow these not GE approved photographs can be viewed by other Panoramio users, regardless of the G. Earth original application. Another point is that I think these photographs are selected by an automatic program of limited intelligence and some erratic behavior.
