AN APPLICATION FOR THE EXPLORATION OF WEB SITES THROUGH SEQUENCE OF PANORAMIC IMAGES AND MULTIMEDIA
iven a sequence of panoramic images acquired along a path the application implements a transition mechanism between the panoramic images that allows the user to move between adjacent panoramic sequence without perceiving discontinuity. This offers the visitor a visual exploration of the immediate and complete places around the upright position and the ability to move the view closer to those more distant.
The metaphor adopted to support the navigation between views is based on the monitoring of the action by the user to zoom that is translated into an enlargement of the content of the scene displayed when this is far from the current pan and in one easy step to overview next when the displayed scene is centered on the current overview. Interactive hotspots offer visitors opportunities to study on major sites, monuments, works with multimedia materials.
