I manage 500+ sites and need a better visual way of documenting and walking people through a given datacenter.

I'm considering taking several (hundred) pictures and stitching them together so that I can get a better view of the layout and environment.

Microsoft has few interesting programs. One is an unsupported exe called Image Composite Editor, another is called Photosynth, which supports an interactive 3D display of photos. The drawback is that the images are stored on Microsoft's servers, and I'm unsure if they default to a public or private view.

How have you dealt with this challenge, and what tools have you used to solve it?

Google Business View seems like the pro option ;)

Good luck.

  • This will make the contents of my data center public? I don't want the confidential workings of my data center on any server besides one I own... Commented Apr 20, 2015 at 12:10
  • You don't have to make the photos public. But Google has a worldwide network of independent photographers who will handle the photography for you.

check out...


They even have "panoramic" camera heads that range in price(200-700). They even have a google "authorized" head that fits their min requirements.

And if that wasnt enough, they even have a mobile service. But your just wanting interior of your datacenters, not a whole city/town.

But I think someone who offers a suite of software and potential hardware solutions plus a "mobile" unit should be the way to go.
