Panotour Pro 1.7.3: OpenStreetMap becomes the default mapping service
Kolor releases today version 1.7.3 of Panotour and Panotour Pro virtual tour software. This free update fixes some bugs (read the change log below) and sets OpenStreetMaps as the default mapping service (Panotour Pro only) in place of Google Maps, following Google’s decision to stop the creation of new keys for Google Maps API for Flash.
Panotour Maps: OpenStreetMap becomes the default map layer for Panotour Maps plugin
As Google stops the creation of new keys for Google Maps API for Flash, OpenStreetMap becomes the default map provider for Panotour Maps plugin.
You can still use Google Maps if you already have a key for your website.
Panotour Maps: GPS coordinates detection enhanced
Panotour Pro now recognizes latitude and longitude with minutes or seconds expressed with ratios.
Fixed issue 1182: Enhance time to build full spherical gigapixel panoramas
The duration for building tiles of a big 360Â°x180Â° panorama is decreased.
Fixed issue 1171: Remove black lines on cube face borders on iPad tours
In some minor cases, black lines appeared around the displayed cube faces in mobile tours.
Fixed issue 1168: Rectangular hotspots displayed as they are placed in Panotour Pro
Sometimes when creating a rectangular hotspot to display an image or a video in the tour, the fourth point was really hard to set, and the final displayed object in the tour was streched differently as in Panotour Pro.
Fixed issue 1184: Simplify the spots’ spherical coordinates to ease XML edition
Make sure that spots’ coordinates are in the 0-360Â° range to ease the use of moveto and zoomto behaviours when editing the generated XMLs.
