Site DescriptionAl-Balad is the 7th century center of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, under restoration. See,_Jeddah This back street in Al-Balad is typical (in 2012). Note the elaborate carved wood structures over the windows that are used to capture the sea breezes and vent the heat from the housing, although now they often sprout window-style air conditioners.
Project DescriptionDigital cameras are used to capture images in full stereo surround for use in virtual reality systems. These images can cover any field of view, including 360 degree by 180 degree spherical panoramas. Two photographic cylinders are created with identical dimensions, capturing the perspective as seen from each eye position. When these cylinders are mapped to a spherical surface, full stereo in all directions is achieved. This technique allows photographic imaging to create the virtual environment itself. The complete stereo image that is created by this technique can be viewed in any direction that is supported by the virtual reality system design.
