DIY Streetview Camera System

Use this DIY streetview camera system to create your own Google Streetview type imagery.  Strap the contraption to your back, walk around town, and once processed, your data can be viewed in a custom Google Streetview player.

The integrated GPS receiver logs the exact position and date & time for each set of images recorded. With this extra data the Image Processing Server then geotaggs the DIY-streetviews EXIF with Latitude, Longitude, Altitude, Image Direction and Date & Time of recording for easy mapping.

The custom software has been developed to work closely with the unique features of the DIY-streetview camera. It not only mass-processes sets of images into panoramas, it also levels with the orientation data and geotaggs with the GPS data recorded by the camera. It then converts the panoramas into a file format suitable for display on the Internet by the Google custom streetview API v3 based player and uploads data to the included database to enable navigation.

  1. Very cool. Thumbs up.

    Would be cooler if it were Open Hardware, though. It’s only partly DIY, as in "use it to do your own image capture", not as in "actually make it yourself". THUMBS DOWN.

    P.S. the resistor color code “captcha” thingy is nearly impossible for us colorblind people!!!
