Annotating Gigapixel images using HDView

One of the most fascinating things you can do with gigapixel images is, to annotate the panorama and create a "guided tour" within the image.

I worked out how to control Microsoft HDView by injecting new view parameters with Javascript.
This is fairly easy to implement, so here is an example:

Choose a name from the drop-down list and press the "Show me!" button. This will change the viewport to the selected feature.

Gigabot Software Update 0.3c

I have made minor changes to the Gigabot software:
- Bug in "reshoot"-mode fixed
- Shorter timings for faster operation
