If you are creating 360° photospheres with Street View, another app, or a Ricoh Theta camera, please consider requesting to join the "360 Images for Schools" Flickr group, Creative Commons-licensing your image, and uploading it for teachers and students to use. Thanks in advance!
An invite-only group to those educators who are taking 360° panoramic images and are willing to Creative Commons-license them (attribution/non-commercial/no derivs) so that teachers and students can use them in various projects.
