“Our World Unwrapped” is a wonderful series of distorted panoramas of famous landmarks by technical director Søren Ragsdale of Double Negative Visual Effects. He created them with a two-step digital process:

Basically I take a bunch of regular flat photos, I stitch them into a hemisphere (globe), and I project the hemisphere into a flat map. You get distortion at the corners, similar to how a map of the earth distorts the poles.
