Update: The actual 360-degree GigaPan has been successfully stitched and can be seen here: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=23597.
On this special day before Commencement, Jennifer, with the support of her friends, endures sunlight to have a GigaPan taken of her achievement.

We also see Rebecca and Erin as they are walking across the Academic Quad.

This was intended to be a 360 panorama, but encountered some sort of stitching problem, which forced me to make two GigaPans from the 360. The other, Emma and Willy in the Academic Quad, can be seen here: share.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=23013
This GigaPan clearly demonstrates why, when taking a GigaPan(s), I desire blue sky so much.

Note: The GigaPan had to be taken when it was taken... *sadly* the clouds gave the initial exposure reading a most difficult time, but all-in-all, considering the circumstances, I would hope that you consider this to be breath-taking :) If I had waited later or earlier, then we would have never seen the special people that we see in these two GigaPans.

    Thanks for the compliment. In both of these, an eleven-row GigaPan stitch works out to be about 40 seconds per photo, which is cool, but as for stitching this again into a bigger GigaPan, and considering that these GigaPans are really two unique events, but not knowing where the problem my lie, I will pass on a re-stitch. As far as doing a 360 again, I may do one, but one that has 3 or 4 rows and then work upward until it goes crazy again.

    A spectacular shot of Rice. What a pity though that the 360 didn't work out - perhaps one day the 360 bug will be fixed and you can re-stitch. Did you consider trying to make a 350 rather than a 360?
