Facebook tagging plug-in

Hello! First, may I just say you've got an excellent community here. A great piece of software, too!

I am wondering who might be interested in a potential opportunity to develop a Facebook tagging plug-in for Krpano.

I know of two places where it has been done before using Krpano (thank you Klaus for pointing me in the right directions):

Gigapanorama from football with Facebook tagging

Orange Big Pano


And, of course, there was the famous Glastotag panorama, built using other software:

http://glastonbury.orange.co.uk/glastotag/

I have contacted the people who made both of the Krpano pieces by e-mail, but since I'm working on tight timelines, I wanted to come to the community at large as well!

Our requirement is quite simple: we wish to create a very large, zoomable spherical panorama; place it into Krpano; and then to allow people who were present when the photo was taken to find and tag themselves using a Facebook account.

We would want to add a logo and custom navigation elements as well.

Is anybody interested in helping with this project? We're looking to put together price and time estimates as soon as possible.

Thank you! *smile*

same feature-request here :)
Is somebody able to code this? (of course for money...)

Having just completed the client-side part of this, I know what's involved. It's much more than a simple "plug-in"; you need a server "backend" to store and look up the tags, among other things.

For this particular project I have created two major plugins; one to connect with facebook (getting friends lists, posting on walls), and one to load dynamic content from the server (ie: load (clusters of) hotspots into the current scene).

o wowwww..

great Aldo!!

but i think it would just be nice when u as photographer can make some tags that facebook recognizes in your pano and use that and not that other people can add tags...

Wouldn't that be much easier??

Great Stuff Master!

"tags that facebook recognizes"

Could you clarify that? What would facebook do with the tags once it has been recognised?
Where would the tags be stored?

Erm... in your xml file?
Or, in case of sites where visitors can dynamically add tags, in a database.

There is no way to use just pure Facebook and tag with it at panoramas.
As ahoeben writes, you need front side and backend solution which can take care of tags.

We dont have such spectacular achivments like ahoeben have but currently we are working on few interesting and big projects.

Anyone that is developing these kind of things working on selling the licensing/or plugin etc. I am very interested in purchasing this from anyone that can make it available. Thanks!

User stores tag:
first authenticate with facebook to be able to post your facebook data (login)
doubleclick in krpano -> execute javascript -> ajax pull your info from facebook using auth -> translate json to krpano element to show user the information -> user confirms, execute javascript -> ajax request -> php, validate and store in database. -> make facebook walllpost

Loading tags:
Since there are loads of spots, krpano needs to update its hotspots based on the current Fov (and perhaps even the pan/tilt).
krpano onviewchange, if view.fov = 90 -> javascript ajax -> php, select from database where pan amd tilt is between x and y), if result > 100, group hotspots and show number of tags -> json/xml object, javascript translates to krpano element -> display

Backend:
backend should able to filter weird stuff out.

Probally there is some extra vailidation that a user can't tag multiple times.

Like ahoeben said, it's more then just 1 js or swf to load in. Maybe you dont need a database and you can store the info right intoo a json or xml file, but since it's loads of data, a database is recommended.
