Just a quick update on OpenTrailView (https://opentrailview.org) - there are now around 2000-2500 panos of the Lake Como area, Italy, available on the platform plus a smaller number in a nearby area of Switzerland.
These were contributed earlier in the year but only now have I run them all through face/license-plate blurring software (understand.ai anonymizer and github.com/tyndare/blur-persons; see later reply). I haven’t checked all of them manually, but to be quite honest that is impracticable, and there is a “report privacy issue” link so I hope I have done “enough” to address privacy concerns.
One evidence of the power of 360 imagery is shown, incidentally, to my reaction to these panos. Lake Como looks a very beautiful area and were I to have the time, it would be an area I would like to visit - as a direct result of viewing these panos! I think 360 imagery could be a very powerful tool for tourist organisations to promote visits to their area, and precisely why we need a completely free, and open, panos platform which anyone can deploy on their own server.
Also, a quick announcement about an impending shutdown - OpenTrailView will be unavailable weekend of Dec 19/20. This is because I will be updating the underlying database of European OSM data which is likely to take a while and needs to be done while no-one is accessing the server.
