OpenStreetCam plugin becomes KartaView
Following OpenStreetCam’s transition to KartaView at the end of last year, we’re writing to announce that our plugin component will undeniably mirror these changes. The latest version integrates a new name and a matching set of icons and colors which we hope you’ll find not only aesthetically pleasing, but also convenient to work with.
Let’s not stop here, though!
Wrapped 360° photo visualisation
The current KartaView plugin is about to bring to the community some new features related to photo visualisation. Recently, the team has integrated in the tool the support for displaying wrapped 360° images and the possibility to switch between these two available formats.
Map representation and design updates
The wrapped photos integration has been visually enhanced with the following features:
- the purple dots represent the location of the photos, which now offer the option of visualising both photo types (wrapped and front-facing)
- the blue dots mark the location where only front-facing imagery can be found
Moreover, this fresh plugin version now uses a cool new set of icons for illustrating the actions found in the panel in a more intuitive way.
Switch options and photo display
You can choose a favoured photo format from the preference panel by selecting it from the available options – this will have a general impact on the actions from the tool (e.g. seeing the photos of a loaded track or loading previous/next photo).
Another switching option is pressing the 360o button from the panel. It is an extremely useful feature for changing the format of the currently shown photo. As seen in the attached picture, all the previously implemented features are available on both formats, including the rendering of the corresponding detections.
This being said, we’re eager to find out how you are going to use this fresh, interesting feature. You can get in touch with us any time at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what projects you’re working on – we’re always psyched to share with the world what our talented community is up to.
