Google today announced a new community site called Views. It’s a place to publicly share your photo spheres to Google Maps.

Photo spheres can be created with the camera in Android 4.2 or higher, including most Nexus devices and the new Nexus 7 tablet. A photo sphere camera app lets you snap photos in any direction and piece them together. You can also share panoramas you’ve created with your DSLR camera.

You can then view these on your phone, share them to Google+, add them to Google Maps, and even post them on your own website.

To add your own, you’ll need to sign into the Views site with your Google+ profile. Next, click the blue camera button on the top right of the page and import your existing photo spheres from your Google+ photos, or tap “Share” in Android’s Gallery app and select Google Maps.
