Thanks to our introduction by Marco Torres a couple of weeks ago in Maine for ACTEM09, I’m in love with the iPhone application Pano. For more about why I love this program and some other examples, see my October posts, “Easy iPhone Panoramic photos with Pano” and “Beautiful Kansas fall colors and more iPhone panoramic picture fun with Pano.”

Here are four different panoramic photos I’ve taken this week entroute and in Hangzhou, China, with this fantastic $3 application. Click on the full-size images links below to see the “big picture” in Flickr! You’ll need to scroll horizontally to see the entire image in each case. Anyone know if there is a fast/easy way to make a QTVR movie with images like these?

This is a photo taken with Pano on our Northwest Airlines flight from Minneapolis to Tokyo.

This second panoramic photo was taken in the lobby of our hotel in Hangzhou, located near West Lake.

This is the photo of our hotel presentation room yesterday, where I presented with Joe Lambert about digital storytelling. (This was a humbling honor to present in the same room with Joe, btw. He is THE GURU of digital storytelling, internationally. A few of my notes from his session are available.)

I snapped this final panoramic image this morning walking around the lake near our hotel. This is a 360 degree panorama, including 11 different landscape images with the iPhone stitched together with Pano.

I published a bunch of additional photos from around Hangzhou today to a new Flickr set. Tomorrow we are going to tour two different universities here, in this city of approximately six million people. That’s a population almost twice the size of the state of Oklahoma.

As a related aside, I noticed today all three of Marco Torres’ websites are blocked here in China. Without a proxy site like Proxify, I can’t access or (his pointer sites) or his blog site Like Blogger, all blog sites are blocked by the Chinese government.

How nice. Reminds me of home in many of our Oklahoma public schools. 🙁
