Since April 2010, Google has been testing and developing the Business Photos program, which gives users a virtual peek inside businesses through interactive 360-degree imagery.
Through the Business Photos program, if you’re a business owner in many locations around the world (including Australia), getting started is easy. Just hire a Trusted Photographer in your area to take pictures of your establishment at a time convenient for you. Panoramas are created using the photos, and customers can easily find the resulting panoramic images on Google.com, on Google Maps, and on your Google Places listing. If a local photographer isn’t yet available in your neighborhood, you can let Google know so they can figure out where else to expand the program.
Google are actively recruiting more Trusted Photographers to bring imagery of more local businesses online for millions across the globe to see. Visit the website for photographers to learn more and sign up.
