The term panorama refers to any wide-angle image, painting, drawing, photography, video, or a three-dimensional model, of a physical place.
The word comes from Greek (all + sight), and was invented by the painter Robert Barker in the 18th century, to describe his panoramic paintings of Edinburgh and London.
Nowadays, most of the digital cameras and the ones incorporated in smartphones have a mode called Panoramic or Panorama, that can help you to create such wide-angle images.
