We were delighted to welcome a representative from Google Expeditions today, who filmed 360° panoramas and 3D images of Downing's magnificent Main Quadrangle, the Library interior, and other spaces in College. 

Google visited a number of Colleges in Cambridge to create 360° panoramas and 3D images for Google Expeditions. This is a new educational app that enables teachers to bring students on virtual trips to places as diverse as museums, the sea bed, and outer space. These trips are collections of virtual reality panoramas — 360° panoramas and 3D images — annotated with details, points of interest, pop up 2D images, and questions that make them easy to integrate into school curricula.
