The panorama at week 10 2002 was the first Full Screen I posted when I started the Full Screen of the week. It used to be one from the Election in Denmark 2001. You can still find that panorama in the events section at my site VR Aarhus.
For the future I am going to change this panorama to another one of my own now and then.

Week 12 Cyprus Church
Cubic Panorama by Juhani Laiho Finland -
Cyprus has as one of the first places that was converted to Christianity a large number of churches of historic value and many of them are protected by UNESCO and included in THE WORLD HERITAGE LIST
The church is from a town west of Larnaca called Aradhippou
13 B The second panorama 13 B is a cubic panorama.
The church of Santa Maria degli Angeli was built in 1992-96 at the top of monte Tamaro (a ski and sport resort) located in the southern part of Switzerland (Ticino). As you can see in the panorama it is the end station of a cableway that takes you up to 1600 m altitude.
The famous Architect Mario Botta was commisioned by the owner of the cableway, to build the church in memory of his dead wife.
Week 14 The Salm Ruine
The castle is located at 908 meters of altitude, and you have a magnificent view over the lake and the village of Pierre Percée.
This dramatic mountain landscape, is from the Pyrenees on the national borders of France and Spain. Monte Perdido is the third highest mountain in the Pyrenees and rises 3,352 metres. It is a giant limestone mass with dramatic rock features, which rises above the valley of Ordesa, by many considered to be the most beautiful valley in the Pyrenees.
Ignacio Ferandoo made this pano on March 24 2002 from a place called Cuello gordo at 2200 m. You can look down into the Ordesa valley.
Week 16 Krizna Jama by Bostjan Burger
You can also see the whole virtual tour of the cave with a map and both Java and QTVR panoramas.
Bostjan Burger has been doing virtual reality panoramas since 1996. He has one of the largest panorama sites of the world with more than 2000 panoramas available as Java panoramas at his site Slovenian Landmarks.
The site is not just a panoramasite. You will find lots of images and text about places all over Slovenia. Also read an interview with Bostjan and his projects.
I am also proud to say that inspired by my Full Screen panoramas Bostjan has started converting his panoramas to Large QTVR, for presentation in full screen. Se his page with Full Screen QTVRWeek 17 Tribute in Light by Jook Leung
The 11th september 2001 will stay in my memory forever like it will for millions of people all around the world. To honor the citizens who lost their lifes in the World Trade Center attacks, a 6 month anniversary was held with a "Tribute in Light" memorial from March 11th to April 13th. From dusk until 11 p.m. each night two beams of light rose into the sky from a site near Ground Zero.
He has 20 years of professional experience and has done a lot of photo-illustration photography for magazines like Popular Photography, Mac User and many others.

This week I am proud to present a panorama by Donald Bain from Virtual Guidebooks one of the largest panoramasites on the web. Read more about Virtual Guidebooks in the Feature site for Februar.I let Donald himself tell about the panorama:
The Sierra Nevada mountains of California rise slowly from the west, mantled with forest and dotted with lakes. But on the eastern side they drop away abruptly, enormous cliffs facing the desert of Owens Valley. This eastern escarpment is a massive wall of granite rising as much as 10,000 feet above the valley floor. This picture was taken on a stormy spring day, right at the eastern base of the range.
