Google Street View goes indoors
Google offers indoor 360º tours on Google Maps. These tours are shot by Trusted Google Photographers such as myself. They consist of panoramic sphere’s shot every six feet, to provide a virtual tour of the business or organization.
The clarity must be at least 8000 x 4000 pixels. Mine are typically 15,000 wide, but can go as high as 32,000 pixels depending on the subject. In this case I shot most of the frames at 15,000 pixels wide with bracketing exposure to utilize HDR (high dynamic range). These spheres consist of 56 images, with 3 exposure shots each. This level of clarity allows one to zoom in and read the title of most any book on the shelf of the store (Landmark Booksellers, located at 114 Main Street in Franklin, Tennessee).
