In addition, several rotating images have also been created for Merv by UNESCO.

Technical approach

These were made by taking a series of pictures with a digital camera (CANON EOS 350D). These pictures were then processed in a software package (The Panorama Factory v4) and exported as MOV files. These files can be viewed most easily in Apple QuickTime.
