360 camera for member rental and events
RobJN Public Seen by 445
Hi all. We are nearing final plans to purchase a 360 camera for handheld use at OSM events and for rental (members only). Rental is at a cost of GBP 10 to 12 for a two week period, the vast majority of which is postal costs.
This is a thread to check there is interest :-). Please indicate if you are interested in the idea and would be interested in renting the equipment (or see value in OSM UK owning it).
P.s. This is intentionally high level as we are wanting to keep it to just a thread about "Interested"/"Not interested".

Yep. Street level imagery to help mapping. I know that mapillary accepts 360 images so that is one possible platform.

Before I vote, is the idea behind the 360 camera that we can capture street level imagery with it, upload the imagery to something like Mapillary and then map from that imagery?
