|Nürnberg - General View plus Details|
cityscope realized the panoramic view onto the city of Nürnberg.
Located 193 m above ground on a telecommunication tower, the "Nürnberg Panorama" camera presents a 240° view of the southern German metropolis.
This is cityscope's first online panorama project which features the Zoom function: In the online presentation the user may not only pan the panoramic image to left and right, but can also zoom into the picture's depth. -
The Nürnberg Panorama presents the general view as well as a detailed view.
Horizontal field of view: 240°
Vertical field of view: 60°
Recording schedule: Day 1/4 h - Dusk/Dawn 1/2 h - Night 1 h
Image bitmap: 21.379 x 2.048 px, ca. 30MB
PanoZoom Presentation: Zoom factor 6
We've employed the Roundshot D2 HD system of Swiss camera manufacturer Seitz. The robust panoramic scannner is made for outdoor longtime use. The system generates high resolution, seamless panoramic pictures in a single sequence of operation. The pictures have a vertical resolution of 2048 pixel.
The camera function and picture processing is controlled by a computer located in the tower's control room. After recording, the panoramic image gets fractionized into tiles and transmitted to the web server.
cityscope's PanoZoom Player invites the user to a jorney through time and space:
He may select the desired picture in a interactive calendar by date and time. Then he can control his angle of view by panning, tilting and - this is new - zooming. According to the user's navigational commands (pan-tilt-zoom) the required parts of the picture (tiles) are loaded down and fit them together to the desired panoramic view - thus the response time for picture build-up is very fast.
