Project Description

thetaexif is a Python library for RICOH THETA image. It provides a EXIF reader class and a rectification tool.


  • Python 2.7 (not support 3.x)
  • Pillow
  • Numpy

For rectification function:

  • Cython
  • Scipy or OpenCV Python bindings


$ pip install thetaexif


In Python

>>> from thetaexif import TagReader, tag
>>> reader = TagReader.load('image.jpg')
>>> reader[tag.FIRMWARE_VERSION]
>>> reader[tag.THETA_SUBDIR][tag.ZENITH_ES]
(20.0, -24.0)

In shell

$ python -m thetaexif image.jpg

Rectification (requires Cython)

If you install thetaexif with Cython, theta-rectify command is available. It reads gyroscope and compass data and rotate images to rectify camera pose.

Rectify image.jpg and save to image_rectified.jpg:

$ theta-rectify image.jpg

Rectify image.jpg using compass data (rotate image to face the north):

$ theta-rectify -c image.jpg
