We started viewing images from our Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument Photo shoot in the dome & the computer lab today. We had some minor problems, but for the most part everyone’s photo shoots turned out great. The biggest lesson I’ve learned so far is that we have to take it slowly on processing these photographs. Between stitching, HDR processing, and then finally dome toning, it can easily take a week or more of human-hours to finish a single spherical photo. To say nothing of our hope to add in enhancements such as animations, video, and dimensionality.
I spent the later part of the day working with Ethan on packing camping gear for our big field expedition to Chaco Culture National Historic Park, and quite a bit of time on the phone sorting out administrative issues for some of our students and for our trip. Ranger Whyte and Ramona Begay at Chaco Culture NHP were very helpful, and Shirley Gallegos and Allison Hagerman at ARTS Lab did a lot of the shoe leather work getting some behind the scenes issues resolved.
We also had some problem uploading our files to 360 Cities, but hopefully those are immaterial networking issues.
