Abstract

See full text

The storage and/or transmission of image bubbles may be managed for effective use of space and/or time. In one example, a street-view application allows a user to navigate through an image at ground level. The application makes use of panoramic images called “bubbles,” which are captured at spatial intervals. The user can navigate through the images by changing position, or by changing the direction of view. Various aspects of how the bubbles are stored or transmitted may be controlled, in order to make effective use of the bandwidth that is available to transmit the bubbles. Examples of these aspects may include: how much of a given bubble is transmitted; the resolution at which the bubble is transmitted; and/or the spatial frequency at which the user moves through the bubbles.
