But there is software that does that mapping and I'm sure there are papers published on how to transform to and from that coordinate system.<br /><br />Flat Earthers would just say it's fake or "curved lens" and move on -- they aren't interested in evidence or facts.Dark Starhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04356850749159919331noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3367618069880256082.post-62559634416481924402017-01-23T11:00:46.138-08:002017-01-23T11:00:46.138-08:00Flat Earth is the perfect way to think you're ...Flat Earth is the perfect way to think you're smart when you're completly uneducated.

Proof is for mathematicians and alcoholics, right?<br /><br />Do you think it would be possible to do a similar analysis of high altitude footage, made with one of those 360 degree camera's? Like this one:<br /><br />360 Degree High-Altitude Balloon Flight - UA ASCEND 2016 Spring <br />https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPtO2hVXbfM<br /><br />My intuition tells me it should be possible to identify points that are diametrically opposed to each other, and this way you should be able to show that the horizon is not at eye level.

You can interactively change all parameters with sliders in a large range. You can also compair the globe model with the flat earth model on the same picture. To show the correctness of the calculations, I overlayed the calculated grids onto some real images from high altitudes where all data are known. The grid maches exactly the image.
