Angkor Wat, Cambodia, Panorama


Visiting Angkor Wat is worth the long flights. It is a site of incredible beauty and amazing construction. It is also overrun with tourists and tours through it tend to be over-regimented. The combination of crowds and herding made it difficult to find the time to set up and shoot a panorama, but at this one interior site, we had a few minutes of relative quiet. The area was used for ritual baths, but is now dry.

To navigate within the panorama, press and hold the left mouse button. Moving the mouse up/down/right/left will shift the viewing window accordingly. Holding down the "Shift" key will zoom in; holding down the "Ctrl" key will zoom out.

If you have the patience and bandwidth to download a 4-meg file, the Quicktime QTVR file will yield much higher resolution than the smaller PTViewer file above.

The panorama was taken December 28, 2008. It was stitched using PTGui and the high-resolution Quicktime cubic VR generated using the Pano2QTVR utility.
