DigitalUrban Announces Panorama Viewer for Google Earth


digitalurban.blogspot.com is pleased to announce a panorama viewer for Google Earth. Until now to view a panorama you had to use hotlinks to a html browser, now you can view high resolution panoramas directly inside of Google Earth.




The movie above illustrates a series of panoramas using the pre-release version. There are a few issues to iron out with a release aimed for early in January 2007. The viewer will be made available free of charge along with a tutorial detailing how to import any panoramic views at the correct location.

Any thoughts or feedback so far would be welcome.

YouTube does not currently support 16:9 movies, you can download the movie at full resolution and the correct aspect ratio here (39Mb .wmv format)

(note apologies for the poor formatting of the post - blogger seems to currently lose line spacing when you insert a movie).

  1. Looks like your panorama viewer will be especially good if you have a SpaceNavigator to fly inside the spheres with!

    This would be particularily cool if one could enable it as a google earth layer and then have dynamic load of resolution levels in the panorama based on view distance, similar to the dynamic load of the GE imagery. This really seems like a great (and original) way to integrate viewpoint based imagery with a 3D environment.

    It would be nice if there were a mode that would automatically adjust the zoom ( or fov ) of the image based on the distance from the eye to the center of the sphere. This would be such that the sphere was instead a "hole in space" that was a window onto the panorma. The objects would then be always correctly projected onto where they should exist. For example when one was far from the sphere one would only see that which is directly behind the sphere, not a full 180 degree view.

  5. Arrrg... you are killing me .. by releasing your preview just right before I released mine :-)
    But I guess the idea was so obvious that it is normal more than one person should had thought about it at the same time ...

    So if you want another example of the same thing :
    Here is the the KML file :

    And a view of one produced sphere :
    http://www.vrarchitect.net/pano2kml/image/earlySphere.png
    and a very early preview of the tool to place and orient the sphere.

    Enjoy !

  7. Would it be possible to place a panorama bubble inside a building?

    For example, there is a test panorama of the inside of St Johns Stratford here. Could this be placed in a bubble inside your 3d model of St Johns?

    Just a thought.

  9. Nice idea really ! It would be easier to view the panorama if you could move your viewpoint to inside of sphere by clicking it and "lock" the view there. Also orbiting mode around the spere would be nice, however, these might not be possible with GE api - yet.

  12. The anti-impotency treatment you are going to adopt just after being identified with erectile dysfunction is not likely to yield any fruitful result if you do not abide by the precautionary instructions recommended by the physician. For instance, after procuring viagra online if you administer cheap viagra without providing the necessary details to the doctor with regard to your medical history then there are chances that viagra intake might prove disastrous to you. Most particularly, if you are taking nitrate based medicine such as nitroglycerin patches to treat a specific medical condition you should inform the doctor immediately so that he doesn’t suggest you to buy viagra. The usage of Viagra by any person using nitrate-based medicines can trigger off health disaster and as such you can definitely avoid the imminent harm by explaining your medical history to the doctor and avoiding to buy viagra online if the drug is not meant for you.

  16. To decide which online business degree is right for you, it is best to decide what your career goals are or what your current job calls for. For instance, if you want to start your own small business, then a degree in marketing may be your best bet. But, if you are currently a manager at your place of business then leadership degree may get you the skills you need to get a promotion and a raise in your current career.

  20. I lived in CR for six years. The living conditions are goof with all services, stores, health care etc. The "Ticos" are some of the most friendly in the world. Housing is very expensive, even more expensive than Oregon or Arizona which I am familiar with. Employment is almost impossible if you are not costarican unless you have your own business and wages are very low, some of my friends make $550 a month in CR. Forget trying to get citizenship, not doable and no advantage. You can enter the country and legally stay for 6months then you are supposed to leave for three days before you can return. Lots of foreigners take a 3 day trip to Panama then return. Not really a big deal, if you over stay your 6 months you are fined when you go to the airport or you can pay a travel agent when you book a ticket to leave and it is $4 per month fee for the over stay.Real estate works the same there as here, agents etc, google search www.Costa-ricarealestate.com and www.costarica4retirement.com and you will find both. Prices will amaze you.
