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.
