I’m new here, interessting project! I noticed that, compared to Google’s Street View, Mapillary mostly only shows views through the front window of cars. I thought that holding the camera to the side, might give more interessting views, because you’ll have a better view on shops or whatever there is on side.
I travelled by bus yesterday and so I just pushed my mobile against the side window, here are the results: https://www.mapillary.com/map/im/pmvjJt3M3lVc8l-XdB6Icw/photo
You can move through the sequence by clicking “play”, but the algorithm doesn’t really detect the sideway moving of the camera. On some images you can move sidely with the up and down arrows, which doesn’t make sense really and sometimes the images aren’t connected at all.
Especially on the bigger streets where multiple sequences were taken already by other mappers, I hopped to be capable to move the camera to the side and back to the front, like it’s possible on Google’s street view.
Are there any capture options I can set to support this or isn’t this possible yet? Or maybe, do we need a sequence at a different angle, like ~45° to the left or right, so that the algorithm can connect the 90° of the moving direction taken pictures?
