Partial panoramas orientation

This is a response to a question asked by gopanthers - Orientation Failure results in No Panoramas Saved. The problem is the orientation of partial panoramas.

After you selected your panorama type to be partial - the next thing to do is - orientation. First of all, let us suppose the panorama in question is this one:

...and let's suppose, the position on the map is:

First of all, unlike the "full" cylindrical panorama - partial panoramas cover only part of the field of view around the location. For example, the field of view of our panorama is...

Now, the proccess of orientation consists of finding the directions of the left and right directions on the panorama:

On the map:

So, now you should click twice on the map. First click anywhere on the line marked "left", and second click anywhere on the line "right". The order (first left) is important! After the second click on the map you should be automatically redirected to the finished panorama. Note that the left and right lines are not visible - you must imagine them on the map.

And, of course, if the resulting panorama orientation is not correct - just click "Edit" (on the page with your panorama, below the map) skip the first two steps and try your orientation again.

Panoye.com in New Jersey!

Liveblogging the process of moving to a new server for panoye.com:
  • Monday, Jun 22. Started at cca 06:00 (GMT)
  • Restored all files, database
  • Changed DNS entries
  • Waiting for DNS to refresh...
  • Testing:
    • Registering new users
    • Upload panoramas (from file, from URL, from flickr)
    • Email
    • Twitter updates
    • ...etc... ;)
  • Everything seems OK, so the site is now open to all (cca @ 15:30 GMT).
If you still se only a "Currently unavailable..." message - the problem is probably your internet provider's DNS servers that countain old data for panoye.com domain. This should be automatically reloaded in the following next 12 hours.
