Panorama progress


I have been working of late on QTVR panoramas as the weather has been uncooperative for aerial photos. The QTVR process is quite entertaining. If you have not taken a look at the QTVR intro page (always handily available under the images link in the header) give it a visit. There you will find an explanation of my process and links to a dozen or so panoramas at Heron’s Head Park and Don Edwards Refuge. These are slowly making their way onto the collaborative geo-annotation maps referenced in the sidebar.

The progress aspect is related to placing annotations and hotspot links on a QTVR panorama, a feature requested by Wayne. The image below (a small red pumphouse that once served Salt Pond N1) has my first implementation of this feature. You can find a slightly larger version in the QTVR section. You can follow a hotspot link by pointing to one of the labels and clicking. Let me know if it works for you.

Use mouse or arrow keys to turn the image. Shift key zooms in; control or option key zooms out. If the labels are too small try zooming in a bit or going to the larger version.

    Impressive…! As a navigational and display tool, this is developing into an interactive powerhouse. Increasingly, I am inclined to build the major presentation component about a series of screens and [mouse] pointers; with each screen displaying an ENTRY PANORAMA.
