Abstract: This paper presents a new method for the wide-angle projection of panoramic photographic imagery. The proposed methodology uses seam-carving techniques to improve the conformality of an equal-area projection of an image. Fundamentally, any wide-angle projection from a omnidirectional scene will contain distortion, however the aim of this method is to strategically introduce this distortion in areas of low salience in the image, to better preserve the appearance of the important content.
