Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Multimedia and Commons/Support 360 photo viewing

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Support 360 photo viewing

  • Problem: As last year: 360 and panorama photos is a mainstream media type. Articles & MediaViewer do not support it unless we direct users to toolsforge.
  • Who would benefit: readers and editors of wikis/Wikipedia technical articles, architecture and nature related articles would benefit. Also a good way to view panorama photos on mobile devices, where panoramas otherwise are real small
  • Proposed solution: Add support for Mediawiki to record the perspective of an image, either by reading the exif information, or by using a magic word. Add support in the front end to use panellum (example category).
  • More comments: Proposed in the 2016 survey by Ahm masum, ranking at #15 overall with 58 support votes.
