I've wanted to use Spi-V for a long time and have finally gotten around to it for my VRMemphis project. I want to create an extensive city tour tied into GoogleEarth and GoogleMaps. Due to the extent of this project and that is will grow overtime I found that a QuickTime approach would require me to continually update the media files as I add on more nodes and hotspots.
Spi-V's XML approach worked very smoothly, and I believe I should even be able to setup a process to automatically generate the XML file and accompanying html files, and maybe even the GoogleEarth KML file out of an iView catalog.
In the old days, especially very hot summer days, we had to put our film
in the fridge. Now with digital, I have more room for my beer!
This is a test of this blogging system.
I like the randomly generated stills and panoramas. How does one add new ones?
With this message, Mike Quan opened the site to the membership:
I am pleased to announce that a beta edition of the IVRPA website is now available.
The new site incorporates a content management system, and is much easier to
use. Each IVRPA can post text (blog), add a banner image, submit images to a gallery,
create links to a personal web site, and much more.
We are so excited about this new site, and we await your feedback on our new website.
Try it out, post your stuff, and let us know what you think. With everyone's input
This is first entry on this blog.
I successfully uploaded a interactive VR image of the masons room.
I used a small thumbnail, and it seems to be working fine.
It was interesting to bring modern photography to a very old place.
A love of Drupal, ofcourse!
Drupal is used for more and more high profile sites, including sites at NASA and NATO, but also 'smaller' sites such as MTV UK and many others. Google also loves Drupal (and that may or may not be a reason why my own Drupal-based sites are so well-indexed), sponsoring a substantial number of Summer of Code projects for Drupal for the second year in a row.
See, my fanboy-ism towards Drupal when we decided what CMS to use way-back wasn't unfounded...
On Sunday, Juy 2, I was rushed to hospital with a sudden life threatening medical problem. It was all over in 48 hours and I am home now, feeling fine.
Kat and Landis came to visit me in the hospital and Landis made a VR panorama of the scene. Notice how happy he and Kat look.
It was interesting to see where my mind went under the influence of medication and stress. I posted this account to the World Wide Panorama list on Wednesday, July 5.
Thanks to everyone who has written to wish me well. I really am just about back to normal already after my wild weekend.
