Home \ glossary \ Panoramic Photography

A Panorama is any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space, whether in painting, drawing, photography, film, seismic images or a three-dimensional model. The word was originally coined in the 18th century by the English painter Robert Barker to describe his panoramic paintings of Edinburgh and London.

Panoramic Photography is a technique of photography, using specialized equipment or software, that captures images with horizontally elongated fields of view. This generally means it has an aspect ratio of 2:1 or larger, the image being at least twice as wide as it is high.
