Panoramio Geo Tagged Photo API

Learn about the Web Services standards REST and JSON by using Google Panoramio and just your web browser !

Using the Google Panoramio API you can display the photos from Panoramio on your own web site. Geolocated photos from Panoramio are great to enrich your maps or illustrate information where location is a important factor (real estate sites, hotels and vacation sites, routes & trails…).

Here's how you'd get some photos of London (X=~0,Y=~51)


http://www.panoramio.com/map/get_panoramas.php ? from=1 & to=16 & minx=-1 & miny=50 & maxx=1 & maxy=52 & size=small (just remove the spaces on either side of each "?" and "&" )

This REST call returns a JSON result set that you can view in your browser and cut and paste photo URLs from :

{"count": 42259,
 { "photo_id": 4337937, "photo_title": "Sir Tatton Sykes Monument", "photo_url": "http://www.panoramio.com/photo/4337937", "photo_file_url": "http://mw2.google.com/mw- panoramio/photos/medium/4337937.jpg", "longitude": -0.537515, "latitude": 54.042054, "width": 270, "height": 500, "upload_date": "31 August 2007", "owner_id": 278681, "owner_name":  "G3ZZP", "owner_url": "http://www.panoramio.com/user/278681" }
 { "photo_id": 51502, "photo_title": "eclipse", "photo_url": "http://www.panoramio.com/photo/51502", "photo_file_url": "http://mw2.google.com/mw-panoramio/photos/medium/51502.jpg",  "longitude": -0.121665, "latitude": 51.500969, "width": 500, "height": 375, "upload_date": "24 September 2006", "owner_id": 6645, "owner_name": "JesusVillalba", "owner_url":  "http://www.panoramio.com/user/6645" }
