I haven't done anything fancy with the panorama like add hotspots or annotations so here is a brief description: The office is 167 Central Ave, Pacific Grove [map] right by the border of Monterey & Pacific Grove. Monterey is about a block down the road towards the hills. This proximity is useful to know if you are speeding through PG and have the cops on your tail: hit the gas through the lights and leave them in a cloud of hot rubber as you jump the border into Monterey, Dukes of Hazzard style.
(Yes, just kidding! Cops here do show no hesitation writing people up for about anything, be it the 90min parking or 25mph speed limit. I watch 'em all day long...).
The big biege building across the street with the brown tiled roof is the Monterey Bay Aquarium Administrative offices; to its left you can see the Bay itself. This picture doesn't really do justice to the view.
The Virtual Health Networks logo on the door welcomes you into the offices here. It's a bit dark, thankfully, so you can't really see my pile of junk by where I sit right there.
You can download or view the panorama image itself.
Funny story: I had originally taken 15 shots and the software wasn't quite smart enough to ignore the extra. So I deleted the spare but accidently deleted the wrong one. PhotoStitch was undeterred however and merrily stitched the gap apparently using as an alignment marker a pair of similarly colored cars parked next to each other! The result was an obvious gap where part of the Learning Depot's storefront was missing but with a mysterious copper and silver car in front of it. I wish I'd kept it now...
There are an astonishing number of viewers: bare-bones jobs from 4K(!) that just spin & scroll to ones that allow hotspots (clickable areas that perform some action, or load new panoramas), titling, different perspectives and walk-throughs. Even a spherical format which features vertical panning too.
