This is one of my favourite functions and anyone who needs to regularly image large structures will thoroughly get there money’s worth from this. The number of applications this will assist with is limitless; buildings, roofs, boilers, furnaces, ovens, kilns, pipe work and ducting, autoclaves and pressure vessels…. the list goes on. Now panoramic image capture is nothing new, but it has always been very clunky and awkward to use. Countless hours could be spent trying to “stitch” images together or getting them to align properly. It was tedious, time consuming and for the most part I avoided it wherever possible. Well, I am happy to report that Testo have tackled this problem with a high degree of finesse and it works fabulously.
The onscreen assistant makes light work out of stitching up to 3×3 single images together in one fully radiometric image. The panoramic image is then created automatically on your PC by the TESTO IRSoft Software.
This is simple 3 image panorama I made in just seconds in the car park. As you can see all 3 images are on a common scale (and can be adjusted as such in the software), plus it also makes a panorama with the visual. With more patience and precision, you can align the images with even great finesse.
