IMPORTANT: The orientation of your 360 images depends on the compass calibration of the 360 camera you are using for capturing. The information is saved as part of the metadata of the images.


Recommendation: In order to have the best results, we recommend calibrating the compass of the camera before each job walk (by doing an 8-figure in the air).

In the Web Editor, you can correct the orientation of your 360 images any time after uploading them to your HoloBuilder projects.
