A significant update since my last post: you can now create and modify routes on OTV’s main page. As you’re probably aware, the key thing about OTV is to allow contributors to connect photos together, to make a route of interlinked photos which end-users will be able to walk along to create a StreetView like experience. The essentials of this are now done – you can create a new route (select “New route” on the main map page) by connecting together existing photos, and you can also add photos to an existing route by selecting “Move” on the main page and dragging the chosen photo onto a route. More information on the Howto page.
So do have a go contributing some of your own photos and making routes. Being in development, the odd bug could well come up so do let me know if you’re having problems.
As already suggested, next thing will be to start working on a prototype viewer for end-users though a range of other things like work commitments, moving house and a holiday are going to be occupying most of my time for the next three weeks or so, so it *may* be some time before the next update. But don’t go away, in the autumn and winter months I’ll hopefully be doing a fair bit of OTV development!
