360 degree photographs
Im having a bit of an update on the schools website and i would like to include a number of 360 degree photographs of different areas of the school. The ones that you can drag left and right to see everthing around.
Is there a way of doing this with a digital camera and some software, do i need any special hardware?
I was hoping for something thats cheap (free) and easy to use.
Anythin will do.

There's probably a 'proper' way to do it, but I just stand very still, spin round in a circle with the digital camera whilst taking lots of photos then lob it into Autostitch -
Crop the output to have a neat top and bottom and viola, a stupidly huge 360 degree flat photo - haven't tried to make it scrollable, but I assume you'd just need a simple image loader with wrap in Flash...

if you have a canon (compact slrs dont have this) they have a stitch mode on them that shows the previous pic on the screen so you can line the next pic up with some overlap to get a good match. They also come with s=their own stitching software thats pretty good

360 Precision, Panoramic Tripod Heads, Virtual Tours, Stitching Software and Hardware, Precision and adjustable panoramic heads
This is how you do it properly, you need a special tripod so that the camera turns around a central axis where its CCD is located.
One-Shot Virtual Tours, 360 degree panoramas! Amazing Virtual Tour lens and software. and buy one of their one shot mirror adapters for dslr.
Or you pay someone to do it for you

Windows Live Photo Gallery will do it. You can download it from Microsoft. Funny you should ask because we spent a few days looking for something and then this turned up.

And it you want to do it in Flash then this website has a tutorial:
