Abstract

Among different multimedia format, the panorama images could present the real-life spatial scenery in the Internet which offers better viewing angles than traditional 2D images and videos. This study provides a gentle approach which only takes two images to create the spherical panorama images for the 3D viewing environment as a virtual tour navigation system with low cost (less than $2000 for the whole system). By the help of the 183 degree fisheye lens, the self developed pano head which positions the lens at the center of shooting angle, and the auto-morphing algorithm to transform the fish eye images into the spherical panorama images, the proposed navigation system can easily demonstrate the interior profile, layout of the 3D environment, and the viewing coverage on the screen which offers the detailed information, photos, hot spots for hyperlinks on the web pages. Therefore, the whole spherical panorama images can then be created seamlessly and conveniently for the 3D usage on the Internet which extends the usability for the panorama image based systems.
