This tool lets see how the source images are located in the panorama. It allow to check positions, overlap, parallax then also to remove images if necessary.

It is also interesting to note the images display is not similar to a standard viewer like the preview on Windows or Mac.
Indeed, images are displayed and projected on the inner walls of the reference sphere, images are distorded consequently to stitch correctly, depending on the whole panorama and projection field of view.
