Re: warped flat image in VR...

David: Thanks for letting me know about the problem with AdGuard. I wish these services would notify a site when they start raising red flags on it. GoDaddy is my hosting service and I pay to have their Website Anti-virus service do a daily scan of my content. They aren’t seeing any issues at the mo...

Re: warped flat image in VR...

I think one workaround for this problem is to use an aspect ratio of 1:1 for all flat images that are to be viewed in VR mode. Putting the images in a square white frame is a way to do this while preserving the images' original proportions. There are quite a few examples of this technique in the fol...

Matin Luther King Jr. Statue

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s recent birthday, here's a panorama taken at his statue in San Bernardino, California:

Hot spots allow reading the plaques: "Stand tall, O Dreamer, your legacy remains in perpetuity".

Veterans Memorial Park virtual tour

Here's a virtual tour of Veterans Memorial Park in the city of Las Cruces, New Mexico:

As the name implies, the park contains exhibits and memorials honoring New Mexico's war veterans.

The tour is a mix of flat images and panoramas.

Re: VR and general web users

Not sure if this is a bug or just a design limitation, but I'm finding that specifying the pan, tilt, and fov using direct node access doesn't seem to work if the tour has only one node. That can be a problem when trying to use text hot-links to reposition a single node "tour" to various p...

Re: VR and general web users

That would be a nice enhancement for a future version of Pano2VR, namely providing a transition/pan effect when using direct node access to reposition the view within the current panorama. Maybe allow specifying both "from" and "to" values for the pan, tilt, and fov numbers, alon...

Re: VR and general web users

SRibas: While I suspect the JavaScript API will give you the best overall control of your panoramas, there is another approach for having text-based hot links reposition a panorama’s point of view. A company called Esri has a set of tools that can be used to produce what they call “Story Maps”, whic...

Re: VR and general web users

If you aren't already familiar with it, this link on "direct node access" describes how to access an individual tour node using an external hyperlink: https://ggnome.com/doc/pano2vr/beta/dna/ Full control over the pan, tilt, fov, and projection is supported. This should let you link direct...

No problem. I have been enjoying the beta tremendously. It's a real kick being able to view pano2vr tours on the Rift now. You and your team do great work!

Re: WebVR

Can you say if support for URL-based hotspots in VR mode is on the radar? As far as I can tell, the current beta only supports VR hotspots that go to nodes within the current tour. I'm hoping that the final release will allow access to multiple tours (through their URLs) without leaving VR mode. Tha...

Re: "Architecture for people with disabilities" (Manual)

This is an interesting presentation that conveys a wealth of information to the viewer. Very nicely done! I hope you will consider doing an English language version at some point. There appeared to be a problem with one of the hot links though. In the initial view in the main hall, there is a long c...

Re: Multispeciality Hospitals Virtual Reality India

Good tour that provides a lot of information about the facility. I found it easy to get lost in all the corridors though. I think adding a floor plan (as supported in version 6) would make it much easier to navigate. Also, I saw one white board that seemed to list the names of a couple of patients. ...
