panoramic navigation made easy

Field of View's SPi-V engine (pronounced "spiffy") lets you take panoramic images from places like flickr, and turn them into interactive, full-screen environments. (note: shockwave required)

Here's one of mine, the amphitheater near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

That "equirectangular" tag is well done.

This totally reminds me of Peter Gabriel's "Eve" CD ROM. Anyone else spend endless hours clicking through those environments?

You can do it on the fly.

All you need to do is append the url of a photo on flickr to the url for the SPi-V site.

"" + photos/davefaris/411697455 = this

Nice find! I shoot a fair number of panoramas and this is an interesting new way to see them.

Here's one from my photostream :)
