Several photography buffs from Moscow started to photograph the famous monuments and cities with a 360 degree panoramic camera mounted on a small radio controlled helicopter like device.  These high-resolution films of the cities taken from a height of 50 to 250 meter are amazing to see.  Their panoramic views provide a detailed context to these monuments which is hard to get through a google satellite image.

Their team of eight members have created more than 700 aerial photo panoramas of 120 world-famous sites and monuments on all continents.  The quality of their panoramas is astonishingly high.  Airpano has posted all their work on Airpano.com.

Some of my favorites are:

Paris:

Sooner or later a  visitor to Paris ends up at Eifel Tower or Louvre.  Here is a view of both you may not have seen before.
