Instructions and PTViewer created by Helmut Dersch.
This example, showing the Mitchell Point geocache location, demonstrates the use of high resolution zoomable images inside PTViewer.
It consists of a medium resolution 360° Panorama (2000x437 pixels,
164kByte) and two high resolution rectilinear images (field of view 18°, and 0.4° ~40kByte each).
After the main panoramic image is downloaded, a view of Mitchell Point is displayed. You can navigate and turn around like in
other VR-Panoramas: Click and move the mouse to pan and tilt; While
panning, use control and shift keys to zoom in and out; Alternatively,
use the arrow keys for panning and tilting, and + and -, or > and <
keys to zoom, or use the control buttons.
When the first high resolution image has finished downloading,
a red button labeled "Zoom" pops up in the lower left part of the viewer
window. Click it to automatically zoom in and see Joel and Brad.
When the second high resolution image has finished downloading,
a yellow button labeled "more" is displayed to the right of the red button.
Click it to continue zooming into the image on Joel's T-shirt (enhanced).
The high resolution images can be turned off by clicking
the button in the right lower corner of the viewer window (marked with
a black dot), and back on using the button to the left (red dot). Turning
on requests take a few seconds to process.
The source images for the PTViewer applet can be downloaded
