Sony’s Intelligent Sweep Panorama Mode
it works really well.

There must be some on-the-fly stitching
Pretty sure, military have this 🙂
But just like Jeff said, if you have a really good [preferably open-source one] Shout !
Thanks !

By: Jeffrey Warren Tue, 02 Nov 2010 14:48:49 +0000 Yes, we’ve tried automatic stitching but it hasn’t resulted in any successful maps yet – most systems assume a fixed camera position (that is, you spin the camera, but don’t move it), rather than what we have, which is all over the place, all altitudes, etc.

That’s not to say it’s impossible, but I think we appreciate the more participatory hand-stitching anyways, and so far nobody’s demonstrated an automated system which is more effective. Please get in touch if you do!

By: gwspace Tue, 02 Nov 2010 13:25:23 +0000 have you seen autostitch
it seam to work on all sorts of odd images?
