Abstract

See full text

Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for, among other things, spatially-organizing images utilizing information about the orientation of each image for display on mobile devices are provided. A plurality of images of an object is captured from a variety of different orientations and each image and its associated respective orientation information are stored in an image file. Upon a device receiving an indication that displaying of the image file is desired, the device detects the orientation thereof and displays the image of the plurality of images that has orientation information associated therewith that most closely matches the orientation of the device. As the orientation of the device changes, the image that is displayed also changes, approximating for a user viewing the image file the experience of three-dimensional viewing of the object. Such image files may also be utilized in association with advertisements and as search queries.
