iPhone 4 Bends Panoramas into Circular Projections

I've been using my iPhone 4 to shoot panoramas using Cloudburst Research's AutoStitch iPhone. AutoStitch is very good at correlating and stitching a set of input images even without sequentially entering them. This makes taking large scenes with overlapping imagery easy to fashion into a panorama.

Another great tool is Infoding's free Tiny Planets app. I can take a panorama assembled in AutoStitch, input it into Tiny Planets, and end up with an interesting stereographic circular projection.

The above images were shot at Kenefick Park here in Omaha where two historic Union Pacific locomotives are now on permanent display. How these two massive locomotives were relocated is another story in itself. Tiny Planets can flip a stereographic projection in two opposing orientations, as seen above.
