Panoramic Image Applet

John M Sullivan
Click on the image and drag image left or right to pan. (When a number is printed at the upper left corner, it gives the approximate compass bearing of the left-hand side of the view.)
This panoramic image was taken at the exhibit of mathematical art at the Joint Math Meetings, January 2005, in Atlanta.

If you see this message, your browser doesn't support Java, or Java isn't enabled. Thus the image here is not the working applet, but merely the fixed panoramic image.

My Canon PowerShot S30/S60 digital camera came with software to glue together a series of overlapping images, even in a circular pattern for a complete panorama.

I wrote this java applet so that the resulting JPEG file (whose left and right edges match perfectly forming a cylinder) could be viewed on the web.

If you click and drag with the right mouse button instead of the left, then its position will determine the speed of a smooth panning. Unfortunately, for now, you have to keep the mouse in motion (perhaps in small circles) for this to work right, as I haven't put in the proper timing code.
