360° panoramic view

Post by maix » Thu Jan 17, 2019 9:25 pm

Would it be possible to introduce a cylindric / spherical projection to display 360° panoramic pictures?

Do you mean an interactive viewer to rotate / pan / zoom etc.?

Yes, I thought in the first step to be able to view horizontally only stitched fotos over 360°.
As additional functionality it would require that in a window you could
- see up to 180°horizontal view angle / half of the foto (to avoid repetition in view)
- pan the foto to the left or right all the time, repeating the picture from the right/left border.

Of cause it would be also interesting to display 360° vertically and horizontally stacked fotos, which would require some maths for spherical projection before display. But such fotos are a rare use case.
