Panoramic Image Applet

Click on the image and drag image left or right to pan. (The number printed at the upper left corner gives the approximate compass bearing of the left-hand side of the view.)

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.

This is a panoramic image taken (2003 May 28) from the center of the main Quad on the Urbana campus of the University of Illinois.

My Canon PowerShot S30 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.
