Creating 360 photosphere virtual tours
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Explore support for creating virtual tours using 360 photosphere on Commons, allowing node-to-node (image to image) navigation and clickable hotspots to bring up popup content (Wikipedia articles, metadata, images, external URLs, et al)

(First surfaced in 2016 as a "Myst for Wikipedia" on Phabricator ticket T133526)

Marzipano on github seems to be the most promising open source library to support such a thing, though it is only a node,js set of modules for raw functionality.

Interested in coordinating with folks who want to discuss or prototyping this.
