No need for apologies Kilgore -- on the contrary,
thanks for calling our attention to the
regression. Good question on the API. I don't
know the answer and will have to defer to the web
team on that.

Man, do I feel like a jerk now ... should have
looked before I leaped. Apologies! Actually, as a
matter of interest, how did the software know to
show the Moon and not the Earth? The API
doesn't seem to return anything special when I
ask for 25581.json. Eg the location datum is WGS
not "MGS" (if such a thing existed).

Actually, it's not geocoded but lunacoded.
Latitutude and Longitude are for the Moon. Past
versions of the GigaPan web site correctly showed
the lunar map.

You seem to have geocoded this image as being in
Angola. I don't think that's, strictly
speaking, correct is it? :-) I assume you geocoded
the image to get the free VR view. Did you know
you don't have to do that? Just use www.3d-360.com/foo where foo is your
gigapan's id and you don't need to pollute
the gigapan database.
