Panorma in Google Earth

I had been thinking about it for months but I was only able to work on it for a couple of evening and WE, after the children were in bed.... As a result, DigitalUrban announced their panorama viewing concept in GoogleEarth before I was able to publish something "convincing". When you have a good idea, never postpone it :-)

So here is a preview of my own work just to maintain some sort of excitement. The general idea is to develop a small MacOSX application on which you drag and drop a equirectangular image of a panorama, then set the position of the panorama and direction of the North, using Google maps and eventually exporting a KMZ file.

Here is a link to a sample of KML file then view of one produced sphere : and a very early preview of the interface to place and orient the sphere.

Launch of PanbScreen screen saver

PanbScreen is a very simple screen saver developed just to play with Quartz Composer. As a result, it will need MacOSX Tiger (10.4) to run. What it does is to display panoramic images proposed on the Panberra web site.

Teiva’s first birthday

Teiva’s first birthday

The moral of the story : don’t shoot stiched panoramas under a shading veil, especially with important wind around
