The transverse mercator projection is a map projection, that maps a spherical panorama (a panorama covering a full sphere) onto a cylinder. In choosing the points, where this cylinder touches the sphere influences the resulting image. To remap a spherical panorama into a transverse mercator image panorama stitching software like PTGui or Hugin can be used.
For the math behind this reprojection you can visit Wikipedia.
This is from my 2019 calender either the January or the July page. This Transverse Mercator reprojection was generated from a spherical panorama I shot standing in the middle of Bad Hindelang’s church St. Johannes der Täufer.
This is from my 2018 calender either the January or the July page.
This Transverse Mercator reprojection was generated from a spherical panorama I shot standing in the middle of Haagse Passage in The Hague.
Upon seeing the unique structure of Allen Lambert Galleria for the first time in a panoramaic image I wanted to take my own one. I tried to find a spot which is as centered in the structure as possible, because one of my goals was to create reprojections of the spherical image. Here are the results:
