Panoramic / Spherical Imaging
Sam O. Hirota, Inc. can deploy several different hardware platforms capable of producing high-resolution 360° panoramic images. Among them are the dedicated spherical imaging cameras, the SpheroCam HDR and the Seitz D3 Roundshot; the Z+F 5010 and 5010c scanners using the Z+F mcam and icam respectively; and the earthmine/Nokia MARS system. The systems were chosen for their excellent optics and proven software solutions and each excels in particular situations.
