|Measurements from 360° (Spherical) Panoramas
360° Panoramas have properties that can enable Angles (both Horizontal and Vertical) to be derived from various projections in the same way as using a Theodolite.
The Angles measured from two or more 360° Panoramas can be used to derive Measurements and Co-ordinates.

Visit Hugh’s world of panoramas …
A site that is being developed to relate specifically to panoramic photography to show the potential of this media and how it is able to convey much more than words or single images.
If a picture is worth a thousand words then a panorama must be worth ten thousand, especially a 360° (or spherical) panorama where you can look all around and in any direction you wish to.
The ancient technologies that have shaped the English countryside for millennia are kept alive today by dedicated people who have become skilled in these ancient crafts.
Conygar Coppice is a web site that provides a gateway into this fascinating world of Iron Age Roundhouses, Hedge laying, Hurdles and Fencing and even Composting Toilets.
Cracking Nuts – they are absolutely passionate about nuts, natural ingredients and North Devon!
Cracking Nuts was born in early Spring in 2014 after it struck them just how moorish and tasty the humble nut can be.
They have found a 200 year old German recipe and by experimenting with it a little have come up with a traditional range of sweet cinnamon, salty and chilli roasted peanuts, cashews and almonds, all with our own unique modern twist.
