Google Buys Panoramio, Photo Mapping Software
Eduardo Manchón of Panoramio said he “couldn’t imagine a better scenario than selling Panoramio to Google.” He adds that the acquisition will enable them to work on “a better infrastructure to improve the reliability of Panoramio, more frequent updates of Panoramio’s Google Earth layer, and more resources for some invisible tasks that take time out from working on new features.”
