About the panoramas:

Individual photos, varying from 8 to 16 for each panorama, were snapped with regular cameras. Those were then stitched together into very wide image files or in QTVR files using the Panorama Factory application. For JPEG panoramas the Java applet used to display them is PTViewer.
