A Couple More Panoramic StitchesA few more from the Olympic Stadium tower...since it is 3-sided, you get 3 views. The other two are this one looking south-east (that's the former Olympic Velodrome in the front, now reconstituted as the Bio-Dome):
and this one looking north:
The street in the foreground there (Sherbrooke St.) is actually straight. The stitcher chose the sphere-horizontal projection; when I switch to cylinder-vertical, the street is straightened but the horizon is now curved:
I should point out that the compass directions given here are Montreal directions, which are warped because the island is on a river that flows east-west but happens to bend to the north right around the city. As a result everything is skewed 90 degrees. For example any Montrealer would tell you that Sherbrooke St. runs east-west but in fact by the Olympic Stadium it runs almost exactly due north-south.
