I made this photos some time ago. But today I tried to create a panorama out of it that Google Photo recognise as panorama. This is necessary to view the panorama with my Daydream VR headset.(https://vr.google.com/daydream/)

This is what it looks in Google Photos:
Google Photos
I used this command to add the metadata:

exiftool -ProjectionType="equirectangular" -UsePanoramaViewer="True" -"PoseHeadingDegrees<$exif:GPSImgDirection" -"CroppedAreaImageWidthPixels<$ImageWidth" -"CroppedAreaImageHeightPixels<$ImageHeight" -"FullPanoWidthPixels<$ImageWidth" -"FullPanoHeightPixels<$ImageHeight" -CroppedAreaLeftPixels="0" -CroppedAreaTopPixels="0" NAME.jpg

This command works wine with a real equirectangular panorama from https://hdrihaven.com/

Perhaps this links help:
https://developers.google.com/vr/reference/cardboard-camera-vr-photo-format#extended_section
https://developers.google.com/streetview/spherical-metadata

Btw. With this open source “Photo Sphere Viewer” it works as expected:

I’ve all the Raw files here (CC BY-NC 4.0):

I was so frustrated, that I created a little planet, because that’s something I know how to do:

Please play with the image and show we what you can reach with it. You get an bonus if the image works as a panorama in Google Photos.

Not sure what you mean here, but I’m able to open your google photos link, and use the mouse to zoom, scroll, move around etc. What am I missing?

@stonefree As the image is not a full sphere panorama, I’d like to have black parts at the botten and top.

I just faked it, I added black borders with Gimp:

Perhaps someone finds a method to do the same with just metadata.

Now I used gmic and Gimp to add a sky and the ground:
