Why can I rotate 360 on the app?

Hi,
When I navigate through the streets where street view is available, why cannot I rotate 360 and see the photos all around where I stand? Like Google street view, where you can rotate 360.
If I take 360 panoramic photo at a point and register and upload it to Mapillary, would it help with rotating all around in the app?
Basically I want to know whether it’s due to lack of functionality of the app, or that’s because of the photos?

Hi

just because most pictures are not 360 degrees panoramic view.
As most mobiles just take pictures ahead of the mobile and only those are uploaded.
360 degree pictures are special marked in map view with a bigger circle (if you zoom in wide enough).

If you are missing those, ask people to do more of them with good cameras, e.g. GoPro Max or alike in 360 degree mode.

There could be several reasons why you cannot rotate 360 and see the photos all around where you stand. One possibility is that the photos are not evenly spaced around you, so you cannot see all of them at once no matter how you rotate. Another possibility is that the photos are not all facing in the same direction, so you can only see some of them from where you are standing. :blush:
