Keep Panoramio Alive: Sign the Petition [http://tinyurl.com/pdbzfqe] As Joaquín, Jose and Eduardo state: "For nine years Panoramio users have been carefully taking, selecting, sharing and manually geolocating 80 millions of photos for countless hours."..."They gave Google the right to display their photos in Earth and Maps. It is fair to ask Google to keep the Panoramio community alive in exchange." That says most of it. More though, Google Views, without the Panoramio community, can only become yet another Google product offering further 'marketing opportunities'. I've not geolocated more than 700 images to generate profit for Google and its shadowy partners. I've done it for myself and for other people, i.e. the Panoramio community. If the Panoramio community is 'pulled' then, like Hans Sterkendries (70,0000 images), I will pull my photographs.

Geotagged photos have not been uploaded to Google Earth since July last year. Looks like Google wants to kill of Panoramio through attrition Please sign the new petition:https://www.change.org/p/google-google-maintain-panoramio-statistics-placing-of-images-to-google-earth-being-visible

Hi Gekko, I wish you well in your travels to South Africa and hope you have an enjoyable time. There is a wide variety of scenery to see from mountains to beaches, to bush, to game parks. The problem is making a choice given the distances to travel. Thank you for kind comments.

Hi Gekko, Te deseo lo mejor en sus viajes a Sudáfrica y esperamos que tenga un tiempo agradable. Hay una amplia variedad de paisajes para ver desde las montañas a las playas, al monte, a juego parques. El problema está tomando una decisión teniendo en cuenta las distancias para viajar. Gracias por los comentarios amables contigo.

Nice perspective, Mike! L & F ! Any chance of adding it to my group Lighthouses in South Africa?
