Is there an ArcGIS extension or utility that will view 360 degree panoramic images? I've found utilities that are part of larger software packages for managing mobile scanning data, but all I'm after is the spherical viewing capability.

If there isn't a tool out there, does anyone know of a .NET control that I could incorporate into an ArcMap extension that will handle spherical display?

Almost certainly not possible in ArcGIS. – Jakub Mar 9 '12 at 4:54
I've seen extensions to ArcGIS that include a viewer for panoramice images. So, it's certaily possible. – Jeff Berry Mar 9 '12 at 16:25
Can you please post links to these extensions? – Jakub Mar 22 '12 at 18:24
nView from GeoNav Group is one. – Jeff Berry Apr 9 '14 at 12:45

earthmine for ArcGIS may offer the functionality that you seek ...

provides a dockable window within ArcMap that displays the high resolution, immersive street level view alongside the traditional 2D map view. Features within the geodatabase are then accurately displayed on top of the panoramic imagery.
