Virtual tours based on spherical photography

The 360 spherical panoramas and virtual tours, which use the 360°х180° panoramic projection and interactive control, are the modern and effective form of space presentation. The viewing of the spherical 360 panoramas and virtual tours doesn’t require the high speed data transfer, which makes it possible to place and extensively advertise them on the Internet.

Spherical panorama (or virtual panorama, 360 panorama, cubical panorama, 3d panorama) is a special photograph, which covers all the space around one definite point for the angle of 360° horizontally and for the angle of 180° vertically. The virtual panorama assembles from several photographs, taken by the superwide-angle lens and bands together with the help of special software into one jointless image, which creates the impression of your presence in the centre of the 360 spherical panorama.
With the help of the mouse or the keyboard you can view the space around, below and above you, draw nearer the things and objects or distance them, carefully examine the details or study the general concept. In contradistinction from the video, you’re not reliant on the camera movements, because the movement in space is completely under your control. The spherical panorama can be supplemented with any kind of text, background sounds, pop-up pictures, videos, etc.

It’s very easy to control the 360 Panorama. With the help of the left button you can rotate the image in the required direction (in order to do it simply click and hold). To draw the objects nearer or to distance them (zoom) it’s enough to give a twiddle to the wheel on your mouse.

Several spherical panoramas can be banded together, and that’s exactly the way to make a virtual tour. By making one single click on the pointer in the 3D panorama you’re making a real journey, while moving from one panorama into another (for example, from one room into another) or even to the external web source. In order to give the visitors of the virtual tour a better orientation, the panorama can be supplemented with the interactive map with the “radar”, which shows the view direction and the viewing angle. The virtual tour is perfect for the building or interior showcase, for city and museum tours and more.

You don’t have to install any additional programs to have an ability to view the virtual 360 panoramas and tours – it is enough to have Internet-browser, like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox with HTML5 or Flash support, (read more about 360 panoramic players). Today's HTML5-based spherical panoramas and virtual tours work not only on the desktops, they can be viewed also on mobile devices.

That would make the panorama more lifelike and impressive.
