    You are the King of interactive tours: tinyurl.com/ZoomBabyZoom001 < img src='/images/external_link.png' alt='Will open in a new tab or window' /> The first thing I have to do is to create a listing of GigaPans taken around Rice University similar to what we have done for Bath: www.gigapan.org/viewConversation.ph p?id=40892

    I was thinking you might focus on Rice and work out to make an interactive your in GE. Then you could tell me how to do it :-)

    Interesting question(s) you present here Kilgore661; what we need to do is to focus on Bath and create an interactive Google Earth tour and use that as a pattern for other GigaPan adventures and the walking tour of Rice can be quickly accomplished once I assemble all the pieces.

    You have posted so many images of Rice and yet I still can't recognise many of the buildings! I wonder if you have considered putting together a walking tour of Rice like your excellent one for Bath (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/13782/snap shots/40892/) or even something more interactive such as a tour in Google Earth?
