3d view of buildng
« on: January 31, 2005, 02:00:30 PM »
I want to put on the web some way to see around my entire school. I thought about walking around my school, taking like 100 pictures, and then having this JavaScript (wish I knew Flash) box where it showed 1 picture, and you could go right to see a view from 1 step to the right, or you could go to the left... however, this would be a 2d representation and I don't know if it would look "real" ... it might just look all jagged and not make sense.

How can I show a full view of my school?

Not an answer to your question but you might have fun looking at the California Coastline project. Sequential photos of the entire California coast.

Or this nifty 360 degree shot (uses java)

Maybe check out real estate forums that might discuss the technology.

My problem is that I want to show a 3d view going around the building, not stand in one place and look out.

Sounding like the vrml stuff like the automotive dealer websites would use to let you 'grab' an image of a new car and kind of 'walk around' it.
