Is this technology similar to Google Street View on Google Maps?

Yes! In the last few years, Google has spent a great deal of money preparing the Internet for 360° images, or as they call them, Photo Spheres. Google Street View is basically the same technology with 360° images linked together on a map.

The link below will take you to a Vistaramic, 360° photo tour of a golf course on Google Maps using Google’s 360° player. Click the link, locate the yellow Pegman in the lower right corner, right-click-hold, drag the circle under the Pegman over a blue dot on the map and let the mouse button up.
