Previous image processing techniques based on plane-to-plane transformations cannot be utilized for spherical panoramic images. In this paper, we propose a new method to inpaint a spherical panoramic image using exemplar, which is deformed by the location of the patch. Our proposed method makes the deformed exemplar patch by latitude and uses it as the reference patch to restore the damaged area. The exemplar-based inpainting method is based on the planar image coordinate system and thus the classical method cannot be applied to the spherical panoramic image. The merit of our proposed method is the fact that it is not dependent on the location of the damaged area. From the experimental results, we proved that our proposed method satisfies the original purpose of the exemplar-based inpainting technique for the spherical panoramic image.
