Help: OverviewThere are two main things to do in RealPlaces: Explore and Create.
- Exploring is simply visiting real places around the world from a first-person point of view.
- Creating is where you can build your own real places to share with others.
After you explore some of the places that others have created, try creating a place of your own - even if it's just one or two spots. Feel free to experiment; your places are private until you choose to make them visible to others.
View: A photo taken from a first-person perspective, which has been assigned its precise physical location and facing-direction.
