How to determine if an image is 360 photo?

Postby superboonie88 » 14 Apr 2017, 17:54

What's the most efficient way to determine if a JPEG is a 360 photo? Do you look for the presence of Photosphere XMP metadata? Is there a library for doing this?

I don't know about the best way, but you can probably grab the info you want from metadata.
You can look at the data with these tools:

exiftool

ExifToolGUI

Once you've found the data you're looking for, you should be able to find a library to handle this.

It appears that Facebook looks for Make of "RICOH" and Model of "RICOH THETA S" to get 360 treatment. You can also check for ProjectionType of equirectangular See this:

If you created your own 360 photo or don't happen to know the Make and Model of the camera used to capture your photo, can simply set ProjectionType to "equirectangular," or use an known 360 camera's values as a trigger.
For example, setting Make to "RICOH" and Model to "RICOH THETA S" will work to get 360 treatment in Facebook, as long as the image's aspect ratio is 2:1.

In this view of the XMP data, you can see the Projection Type as equirectangular.

Great that it was useful. As Facebook appears to look for Projection and Maker, then it might be a pretty safe bet for your application to look for the same things.

In the case of RICOH THETA images, the ratio also needs to be 2:1.

There's a bunch of libraries to grab the data. I have not tested any of the libs below. If you successfully test an app with THETA images, please consider contributing a community code snippet to show the technique for data parsing.

You will find a variety of diverse choices when sharing as well as taking panorama or 360 images.

Probably the most common' Consumer' strategy is application. That's, making use of a mobile or maybe desktop app, which enables you to take a broad landscape picture, or stitch together a selection of specific photographs. For instance, the' Panorama' setting on the Apple iPhone is going to allow you to carry a picture this way (in case you are able to maintain your fingers steady!).

For the greater skilled photographer, the hardware answer is generally more effective. That's buying one of the different 360 cameras available, exclusively designed for this photography type. For instance, the Ricoh Theta digicam has 2 high quality fisheye style lenses mounted opposite one another, which then' stitches' the 2 spherical pictures together.

The image below is a good example of the way the resulting photograph looks, prior to being applied to 360 photo view application.

Basically the most easy part to determine 360 photo is to see it. 360 photos are different then other photos. You can view a 360 degree of image.
