Google Earth Panoramas

Hello friends

I just want to share a couple of panoramas I found on the web. They are made from Google Earth.

Personally I think they are amazing, and it shows a great new way to use our technology

I hope you like them as much as I do

Thanks for your help and advice. Finally I got it. The problem was that the settings I was using were different then the apparently needed ones. Problem with the lat and long. But once I found it out, it is really easy and I just stitched and previewed it in QT to see if the results were satisfying and tell you. Now I need a sky to complete the pano. The night/black sky is not so attractive in this case. So if you have a source where I can get one , welcome.

Regards and thanks, Martin

Hola Martin!
You're welcome, looks good to me.
yep, I was there. A day to remember. I went there to make a pano of the Obelisco because it was covered in an Argentine and German vlag, and came home with my first in-a-crowd pano's with 12 barely dressed girls promoting condoms on them ;-)

Thanks

Err, you would click "Equirectangular corrected image" and then "right click save image as"

Hi Martin

Great job. I can't wait to get startet doing these panoramas. I actually think that I might make a "virtual world" wher you can visit some of the most exiting places on earth with arial panoramas :)

How lon did it take you to complete the panorama?


Best regards

Hi, Morten!

Actually, once I found out how it works, it is a matter of minutes. I need some time, understanding the settings in Google earth to have the right values of lat. and long. Once I found this out, I have to discover where the images are saved to click on them and then save the images. As said, once I found that out the process is very simple. Click on each "landmark" and save naming it. In the tutorial they said it took about 28 images. I actually get 41 images plus the sky Vilmer guided me to. Once saved the images, stitching is not an issue, because there are enough controlpoints and no parallax problems. So the process is very easy and relatively fast. Now that Im an "expert" ( a joke)  I will be happy if I could help you with anything you should need, once you start to experiment. Anyway Im sure you will find it out as well as I did.

Good luck and regards, Martin
