Some AR browsers and other mobile phone apps (e.g. Argon, Photosynth, 360 Cities, Tourwrist) allow the user to create, display or interact with panoramas and other forms of historical and contemporary imagery. These technologies open up exciting possibilities for cultural heritage, entertainment and other uses in location-based experiences. Full panoramas or historical photographs merged into the visual field can provide the user with a perspective on a place as it looked in the past or might look in a possible future. We propose to offer the participants in this tutorial an introduction to the technical issues involved in creating and integrating such imagery into an AR/MR application. We will also provide relevant historical background regarding panoramas and consider issues of aesthetics and user experience design.
