I remember seeing a story about this on Channel Nine News last week and forgot to follow it up. Yes I found the site a bit slow also but still usable. Without wanting to throw the baby out with the bath water, I guess it could have some potential uses. I'm sure there will be the armchair brigade who'll happily now find yet another excuse to never leave the house. But for less mobile people or with a disability it may extend options to visualise things that may otherwise be difficult to achieve independently.
That said I'm not sure about the choice of material in some cases. In Royal NP Wattamolla would have been fairly low on my priority list. Yes, it's scenic and popular, but it's a beach with picnic area that you drive into. Hard to describe that as trekking. And two of the panoramas are of the car park! It's early days so hopefully it will build over time.
