Thousands of photographs in one image

In reality, a panoramic photo is the merging of  multiple individual shots into a larger image covering a wider viewing angle of up to 360°. It begins with merging selected photos and can result in combining hundreds or thousands of shots to produce gigapixel photographs at an intensely high resolution.

Areas of application

Panoramic photography is effective for both indoors and outdoors, and the final photographic product can be used to create virtual tours as well as VR applications.

Production of panoramic photographs

To produce panoramic photos, I use a special panoramic robot that, through unique programming, rotates the camera while taking photos from multiple angles. This ensures complete precision in the merging, which is essential for archaeological applications or applications where precise recording accuracy is required.

The final photographic result can be easily used on websites and applications, giving one the sensation of being truly present beside each image depicted. Users experience the freedom of intimately exploring  archaeological sites and art collections while at their own computer or mobile device, or they may holistically combine a virtual tour with their traditional museum visit.
