This article deals with the development of a method to warp cylindrical panoramas with the use of the OpenGL graphic system. Under consideration of the recording and reproduction geometry it is demonstrated that this technique is equivalent to conventional image warping algorithms. Problems with high resolution textures and OpenGL are discussed and a solution is shown.

KEYWORDS: image-based rendering, cylindrical panoramas, texturing
