This is my first attempt at a 360-degree panorama and the project succeeded my initial expectations only in that it stitched as a 360. My next project will be something less than infinity although downtown office windows can be seen (i.e., not a blur or out of focus).

As always, this panorama was stitched using the GigaPan Stitcher; therefore, the stitcher notes, which can be seen, are invaluable.

Also, a plug for looking at this panorama via the Google Earth utility can be, for those that like to see 360-degree panoramas, breathtaking.

    Thanks, it has been corrected per your kind advice. What I really wanted to emphasize was the superior 360-degree view versus the typical street view found in Google Maps ... Except for the one instance of where you discovered yourself in a stree view while you were on holiday.

    I think you could correct the main text to say that this is your first attempt at a 360 *using the iPhone* otherwise I feel you are doing yourself an injustice!

    The iPhone is not the instrument of choice to take panoramas of cities, nor of fields or mountains; rather it is designed for people panoramas. As I recall, this panorama is comprised of 13 photos and the result is 0.07 gigapixil, so to take a close-up pano comprised of 13 photos will take a bit more skill than what was needed for this first attempt. FWIW, I am happy with the current GigaPan Stitcher ... it accomplished what it was suppose to do ...I only see one boo-boo.

    I wonder if we will see a version of Gigapan Stitch for the iPhone? That would be great for gigapans taken while on the move.
