RE: [PanoToolsNG] Re: 360precision atome in google streetview
I don’t think a panohead was used.. Probably a timed multi-camera setup on a some sort of moving dolly. Standard GSV. You can tell by how much the quality drop in lower light rooms, and even some shots were published when the dolly was in motion!
No one with a panohead would have made a 360 in motion or require such a huge nadir and get these types of stitching errors. And with such a system obviously a photographer was not needed. Just a chaperone to push around the “thing.”

True...there are stiching errors. But for automated stiching (I suppose) not bad. As a navigation tool and documentary of urbanism of the street such quality and the method is acceptable. The other story is documenting a museum exibition in the year 2011,... I would invest the maximum knowledge and skill into such a project... "not just driving with the bycicle", or trust someone just giving him/her intruction how to rotate with the camera... that is what I don't understand... someone can afford to fly to Iraq, pay for all the security, cameras...e.t.c... but has no finances for a skiled panographer to realize the maximum result.
- Thank you, Eduardo. I'm glad to see there still seem to be people who understand what an open discussion means. I simply don't get why people can't live with other peoples opinions, even not, when they take their time and explain their motivation in detail.
Using killerphrases (if at all) is not the way to cultivate a discussion where people could benefit from.
