Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Author: beradrian

Description:
A nice enhancement will be to include panoramic view in Wikipedia. For this will be enough to
include a panoramic image already uploaded and an applet for the view. A good example of such an
applet is PTViewer and it can be found at http://www.fsoft.it/panorama/ptviewer.htm.

Bug 20132 provides an example of a high-res scanned map:

Note that similar pan/zoom tech is going into the OpenStreetMap map integration; it may make sense to share some infrastructure?
