360cities


14/6/2016:  under review 360 cities  Terminal21 shopping plaza Bangkok

extensive options .. being accessed


18/6 progress report 

setup options extensive
preset angle and start point of view
tag words, location map geo,

share in ad words


must verify if business or non business



against

host site 
moderator rejects ie., they have a filter process for approval before it can be published?
why .. to be reviewed - the email directs to check forum faq


Desktop widget in thaibis directory a lot of help screen info with the image with option to show/ hide 


mobile device
does not allow import from other devices (can only use their app camera and pan not sphere)



Desktop widget viewed in IOS (mobile phone)
in thaibis no visual help V's lots in desktop browser

external link does not work (not published criteria unresolved)






Google Street View


23/6/2016 
mobile app: excellent
take photos and upload
batch upload and location in batch
search to add venue name using google map features
  
downside can not add comments nor links


no widget to embed into website

host cloud service: confusing
relies on your google a/c
no easy to find the images in google a/c
appears they are creating a special album for panoramic - tba 

tag word search: tba 
 
auto links the image into google listing of the venue, name credit but no control over image




HANGAR 

free app for DRONE, auto captures photos and stitches  








Widgets


in short 

the share link within app to Facebook is the fastest loading widget but not the most detailed

some other widgets are loaded below for speed test against facebook



Facebook: click image to open the 360 view in facebook



widget loads quicker, 1st upload into loads fast, lacks 

other apps
various widgets for 306 spherical with different features in host site test apps widgets 360





wide view

same standard size used for other 360 Host / cloud sites  https://viewer.hangar.com/o046mJj2

can increase to any size 











Authors summary



2017 August
use several sites for different reasons 

Dermandar can upload from smartphone, then use ph or desktop to add data, url link and location.
create albums using tag words and can embed in websites
no download 


Theta upload form Sph, they have special tag words to apply online animation effects
online view is awesome, you can change the display style and take great screen shots of the display to use in sites
no download
adding url and description - must be done during upload (no online edit)

bonus: online is thumbnails which can be copied and pasted to webpage with link to to original




Google  limited control over the content, might use in as google post


Facebook easy to upload accepts image and video






23/6/16 Preference continues to be the Dermandar

The mobile app is substantially better than others, 
can upload from sph and add content
output image in video and set map location and VR mode
Host site is easy to edit with many features

the downside is nominal, knowing the site was originally panoramic they are making changes to embrace some Spherical issues otherwise by far the best


Theta is new and limited it is incidental as their primary focus is the hardware


360Cities has incredible options but very limited in Basic (free user subscription)













Hangar for drones:   list of images in a own directory




Google:  multiple a/cs
