ZeelandNet Nominates Panoramic Earth Website of the Day

On the 29th October ZeelandNet nominated Panoramic Earth is the Website of the Day (Site van de Tag) on it's homepage. ZeelandNet linked to Panoramic Earth with the tag line: "Panoramafoto's van over de hele wereld" (Panorama photos from over the whole world), which accurately capturing part of the aims of the site.

For us this was a fantastic recommendation, as ZeelandNet is one of the most popular web portals in the Netherlands, and in the whole world with an Alexa traffic rank of about 23,000. To be promoted by such a website is the fruit of a lot of hard work by both the photographers, writers and programmers behind Panoramic Earth.
