Our first aerial panorama :)360° Aerial Panorama

This panorama can be opened in several different resolutions. High resolution panorama with the best quality is about 7 Mb large and it is suitable for fast internet connections and modern computers. For slower internet and old weak computers we created the smaller low resolution panorama. Some small details have been  sacrificed but the size of low resolution panorama is nomore than 2 Mb.

This test panorama can be jokingly named as first aerial panorama created by AirPano, but formally it is not really aerial panorama, because it was created in May 2006 from window of Moscow flat.

Long time ago shooting spheres was destiny of enthusiasts, the process was very laborious. But now it is enough easy to create a panorama — you have to place on the floor tripod with panorama head and after few minutes panorama is ready.

How is it possible to shoot the sphere at a height of 50 meters in the air, if there is no a foothold?

After several thoughts and experiments Andrey and I found the method which allowed doing it. And here it is one of our first spherical panoramas, shot in the air out of the window. Among other things, this panorama is curious by the fact that it is possible to see me sitting as a model in the window :)

We tried not in vain — it was a preparation for the next stage. About a month later I went to New York and stayed at the Millennium UN Plaza. Then I have already knew, that view from the windows of the hotel is beautiful, and I went to this hotel specially to create a spherical panorama. Photo shooting in Millennium was very unusual at that time, and it made us famous in the world of the spherical panorama. This particular sphere from the hotel was asked to supply by many panoramas' sites. It was even shown in the News of one of the German TV-channels. But, as I wrote, before we left for New York, Andrey and I had perfected this shooting technology many times here, in Moscow, and now you can see result of our first experiences.
