Creating a Streetview for Dioramas

The goal is to create a “Street View”1 of my dioramas.

Software

the “best” tool is Google’s Street view but it is closed sourced. I came across Photosynth by Microsoft Labs, but its dead. Lucky the underlying research and software is open-source to a point, but with one gotcha there is no open-source viewer. Why did I choice Photo tourism mostly because of its command line and photo only requirements.

Hardware

I am looking for motion control rig that can place an endoscope camera any where on the diorama, there are three different ways to position the camera:
