Abstract

Presented here is a discussion of the techniques required to create stereoscopic panoramic images. Such images allow interactive exploration of 3D environments with stereoscopic depth cues. If projected in a surround display environment they can engage the two characteristics of the human visual system responsible for immersion, namely stereopsis and peripheral vision.
