Know about Tag Clouds for Google Maps Photo Layer

The work to find photos from around the world for any place in the world becomes much easier by Google Maps. Google Maps features a photo layer that is able to show high-quality images from Panoramio. Sometime, you may get bunches of photos for your search.
However, you can now filter the photos displayed by Google Maps by using the tag cloud generated by Google or by your own query. In addition, you can restrict the photos to panoramas, landscapes, nature or building to create a custom photo layer.

Jonah Jones says that this is not the only improvement "the photos now appear in piles when there are lots of views of the same scene" which means Google groups related images, so they will not clutter the Map. However, you can enjoy the Tag clouds for Google Maps Photo Layer.
