Thank you!

That's neat - you sure feel the grade much moreso than in video or normal photos. It looks like you walked the trails and took photos every 25 feet or so. That's a lot of work! Would it be easier to ride the trails with a 360deg camera?

For the high quality images as well machine learning tools to take away the tripod we felt it was best to walk each trail for the VR mapping. I feel the extra time involved is worth it in serving up 12K images at nearly 100MP.

Our 360 rig is custom with nearly a dozen cameras mounted in a stereoscopic layout so the risk of  injury due to rig weight and damage to very expensive equipment was to high a risk.

The first few trails are around 20 feet for every sequence but if you look at Pangor or Boogieman we did try to get around 10 feet or so per sequence especially for the interesting features.

Just finishing up post processing for all Cypress, Fromme and Seymour trails and then will be heading out to the woodlot.

That's a ton of work. It really does give you a better feel for the trail than any other media Ive seen. I feel like Im about to die looking at your Wild Cherry work just like it real life!!! You should map the go-arounds too :)

Wow, that's pretty cool and a lot of effort involved. Thanks.

Will you be using machine learning to process the interpolation between each 360 photo ?

For now machine learning is used to remove the tripod out of each stitched 360 photo. It might very hard to use deep learning to place down the markers and advance between each 360 photo. It is possible but the learning data set would need to be massive and even then each trail is so different with unique features unlike a road with marked lines and tangible boarders with traffic signals.

Cherry Bomb is included. Part of an Easter Egg hunt inside the tour.
