This is the first 360 degree GigaPan I made during the May fofs Workshop. It is on a steep forested eastern slope of Flagstaff Hill. The goal was to experiment with the focus and exposure challenges in forests, and to explore the potential for capturing vegetation community information from GigaPans. Ignoring the standard GigaPan protocols, the camera was set for automatic exposure (program mode), automatic focus, ISO 200, and the lens was not zoomed in all the way. The panoramic coverage exceeds 360 degrees, despite the fact that Stitcher Notes reports a field of view of 306 degrees. Making this test on a steep slope allowed me to capture the lower forest canopy as well as the forest floor with only two rows of photos.
