OpenTrailView - updates

Nick Whitelegg-2


Hi,


To follow up my post of a couple of months ago, I have made a few updates to OpenTrailView, a StreetView-like application which allows users to upload 360 panoramas which will then be automatically linked using underlying OSM ways, allowing users to navigate from panorama to panorama.


It now allows you to login with your OSM credentials, removing the need to create a separate account - in fact I have removed the signup facility so if you signed up before, you should now login using your OSM username instead.


It also has a facility to allow you to set the position of a panorama if EXIF latitude and longitude metadata is not present. This can be done either by clicking on the map to position the panorama, or by using a GPX file recorded at the same time to position panoramas automatically by using EXIF and GPX timestamps.

Hi

I find it slightly irritating the next panorama icon isn't in a constant location on the screen. Is there a key shortcut or maybe add directions arrows at the top of the screen similar to Mapilary?

Cheers

Re: OpenTrailView - updates

Hi,


The reason for this is that there isn't a 'next' panorama as such; rather than a linear sequence of panoramas, it's a network, so at a junction there might be multiple routes to follow - it uses the underlying OSM way network to navigate.


It's in the todo list to provide Mapillary (and StreetView) like arrows superimposed on the ground, but this isn't implemented just yet.

Looks very nice and works very smoothly for me, thank you!

One functionality I think would be useful for orientation: somehow make
the current viewfield of the panorama visible in the little overview map
(or if that's too difficult to implement at least link the rotation of
the panorama with the overview map so that they always share the same
geographic direction).

Cheers

Hello Simon,


Glad it's working for you!


It looks like it should be possible to show the view field on the map - a Leaflet plugin exists to draw semicircles for example, so I'll have a look into that - shouldn't be too difficult to implement.


Thanks,

Nick

Re: OpenTrailView - updates

Stefan Baebler
Hi!

I have problems uploading full 360°*180° photospheres. All of them are around 10MB, and could not find any below 5MB to test with. The error does not say much - no photo uploaded and no error code.

The size limit should be raised (eg to 15MB) in my opinion as there is no easy option to compress such images (eg by lowering the resolution).

Also the website is really hard to use on mobile devices. :-(

Br,
Stefan

Hello Stefan,


Have increased limit to 15 MB now - let me know if you still have problems. Still not mobile friendly just yet - will do this when I have the time.


Thanks,

Nick

Re: OpenTrailView - updates

Stefan Baebler
Thanks, the uploading works now!

However, I cannot see my uploaded photospheres anywhere on the site, not even while being logged in, logging in again.... Neither on the map nor on some list. Not sure if it was successful or not.

Few suggestions:
- make it so that the uploader sees his own uploads immediately (no pending approvals etc needed) with a status clearly shown
- allow for lower zoom levels. Panning away from your demo area is slow in high zooms.
- search box should trigger searching when enter key is pressed
- after login you should remove oauth_token from the URL (either via JavaScript history.push or http redirect)
- persist current coordinates in the URL, so it is easy to share and bookmark links (there are plugins for leaflet, eg leaflet-hash)
- make the site more mobile friendly (text is extremely unreadable, buttons hard to hit...)

Thanks,
Stefan

Re: OpenTrailView - updates

Hello Stefan,


Sorry - I have to approve panos before they go live, I've done this now. This is to guard against panos with privacy violations or unsuitable content. I presume yours is the one in the Alps at:


https://www.opentrailview.org/?id=82


I generally check for updates daily. This is the only one I can see, did you try others? Note that you have to upload them one at a time, it will not do multiple file uploads in one go.


Thanks for your suggestions, will implement them as soon as I can.


Thanks,

Nick

Re: OpenTrailView - updates

Stefan Baebler
Yes, this is the one.
I don't mind waiting for the approval process, but when the user has no feedback "thanks for the photo, please wait few days for review before it can be seen" it might give impression that something didn't work, discouraging them from further uploads. You could even show the photos (on map and panorama) to their logged-in authors/uploaders without any approval.

Interestingly, when i open my uploaded panorama on the phone (same as the picture was taken with) it says: 
"Your panorama is too big for your device! It's 8704px wide, but your device only supports images up to 8192px wide. Try another device. (If you are the author try scaling down the image.)"
Some quick googling confirmed that this is a WebGL device driver limitation.

Štefan

Hello Simon,


Glad it's working for you!


It looks like it should be possible to show the view field on the map - a Leaflet plugin exists to draw semicircles for example, so I'll have a look into that - shouldn't be too difficult to implement.


Thanks,

Nick

Looks very nice and works very smoothly for me, thank you!

One functionality I think would be useful for orientation: somehow make
the current viewfield of the panorama visible in the little overview map
(or if that's too difficult to implement at least link the rotation of
the panorama with the overview map so that they always share the same
geographic direction).

Cheers
Simon

This can be done either by clicking on the map to position the panorama, or by using a GPX file recorded at the same time to position panoramas automatically by using EXIF and GPX timestamps.

Re: OpenTrailView - updates

Hello Stefan,


Thanks for the that. ll be a very quick job to show photos to authors without approval, so will do that very soon - today or tomorrow.

Yes, this is the one.
I don't mind waiting for the approval process, but when the user has no feedback "thanks for the photo, please wait few days for review before it can be seen" it might give impression that something didn't work, discouraging them from further uploads. You could even show the photos (on map and panorama) to their logged-in authors/uploaders without any approval.

Interestingly, when i open my uploaded panorama on the phone (same as the picture was taken with) it says: 
"Your panorama is too big for your device! It's 8704px wide, but your device only supports images up to 8192px wide. Try another device. (If you are the author try scaling down the image.)"
Some quick googling confirmed that this is a WebGL device driver limitation.

Štefan

Hello Stefan,


Sorry - I have to approve panos before they go live, I've done this now. This is to guard against panos with privacy violations or unsuitable content. I presume yours is the one in the Alps at:


https://www.opentrailview.org/?id=82


I generally check for updates daily. This is the only one I can see, did you try others? Note that you have to upload them one at a time, it will not do multiple file uploads in one go.


Thanks for your suggestions, will implement them as soon as I can.


Thanks,

Nick

Thanks, the uploading works now!

However, I cannot see my uploaded photospheres anywhere on the site, not even while being logged in, logging in again.... Neither on the map nor on some list. Not sure if it was successful or not.

Few suggestions:
- make it so that the uploader sees his own uploads immediately (no pending approvals etc needed) with a status clearly shown
- allow for lower zoom levels. Panning away from your demo area is slow in high zooms.
- search box should trigger searching when enter key is pressed
- after login you should remove oauth_token from the URL (either via JavaScript history.push or http redirect)
- persist current coordinates in the URL, so it is easy to share and bookmark links (there are plugins for leaflet, eg leaflet-hash)
- make the site more mobile friendly (text is extremely unreadable, buttons hard to hit...)

Thanks,
Stefan

Hello Stefan,


Have increased limit to 15 MB now - let me know if you still have problems. Still not mobile friendly just yet - will do this when I have the time.


Thanks,

Hi!

I have problems uploading full 360°*180° photospheres. All of them are around 10MB, and could not find any below 5MB to test with. The error does not say much - no photo uploaded and no error code.

The size limit should be raised (eg to 15MB) in my opinion as there is no easy option to compress such images (eg by lowering the resolution).

Also the website is really hard to use on mobile devices. :-(

Br,
Stefan

To update: users can now view their own uploaded panoramas even if they haven't been approved yet.
