Aerial Photo 360 over Silverton and Waltloo in Pretoria
Pretoria

This aerial 360 degree view of Silverton and Watloo was the first ever aerial 360 degree photo make in South Africa, and was created on 18 December 2009 by John Gore, of 360 South Africa.

A Robertson 44 helicopter was used for the shoot. And the 360 degree photo was created by stitching together 27 photos, shot on a SLR camera with wide angle lens.

We now offer a much more advanced system, using a remote controlled multirotor aircraft, equiped with an SLR camera and wide angle lens to create aerial 360 panoramas.

    Very proud of this aerial 360. It really was ahead of its time back in 2009.

    More About Africa

    Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
