A few years ago I learned how to take and stitch together 360 degree digital photos.
Since then I have taught students in my course on "Computer-Aided Communications" how to take their own (photo to left).
Below is a selection of four 360 digital panorama photos that I have taken around Sonoma County. I like to think of them as "Circles of Sonoma."
The last pano photo here (Snow on Sugarloaf Ridge) is also linked to a 360 Quicktime movie.
Here are two samples of 360 panorama photo projects created by student teams. They used a hardcopy print out of their photo as the basis of an educational demonstation board. These examples address Copeland Creek (which runs through our main campus) and Fairfield Osborn Preserve (which is our nearby campus project atop Sonoma Mountain).
