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.
