Stratospheric panos!

Post by terje.mathisen » Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:36 am

You have to take a look at what a Texan have achieved with a weather balloon and 6 GoPro cameras:

360x180 panos from high-to-very-high altitude!

One example here from a .js/WebGL viewer:

Very cool, terje!

I looked at the advertising/demo video at the GoPro web site. With the HD GoPro camera, the picture quality is remarkably good.

PS: A while back I saw that NASA has stitched and published panoramas of the Apollo lunar landings; very nice images of the moonscape and spacecraft. They look like Pano Tools style stitched panos. I know that the space program made mosaic images, early on. But the early mosaic images were obvious pasted-together mosaics; the component images weren't remapped. A general question that this makes me think of is; was Helmut Dersch the first to computer remap images to correctly assemble them into larger composite images?

Thanks, Jim Z
