Saw this gem in another WGAN Forum Discussion ...

|That is some forward thinking (dreaming) @metroplex360 ! It would be a major leg up for FB if that integration could happen. Here's to hoping 2018 is the year to be in this industry.|

|There's gotta be a secondary platform for panoramic tours that cover the real world. Yes, Google has years of backlogged tours that have been generated -- however, the imagery needs to be maintained and images from 2015 are dated in quality. This is the sort of thing that a major player like Facebook can get involved with. Facebook has the marketing platform to support monetizing it and making a rewarding platform.
I cannot think of anyone else who might do it. OpenStreetMap.org could do it, I suppose -- or I could imagine Facebook making a hefty contribution to the platform and partnering with them.
