Spherical 3D panoramas and virtual tours using 360°х180° panoramic projection and interactive control are modern and effective way to promote your business. Viewing 3D spherical panoramas and virtual tours do not require high data transfer rate, which allows to place and actively promote it in the Internet. 3D panorama (alias virtual, spherical, circular, cubic panorama) is a special photograph, covering all the space around a single point, 360 degrees horizontally and 180 degrees vertically. Virtual panorama is assembled of several photos taken by ultra wide-angle lens and united with the help of special programs in one seamless image, creating the effect of your presence in the center of the virtual 3d panorama.
With the help of mouse or keyboard, you can view the area around, over and under you, zoom and delete items and objects, analyze details or examine the general view. Unlike the video recording, you do not depend on any camera movement; the movement in space is fully under your control. Virtual 3D spherical panorama can be enriched with any text, background sound, pop-up pictures, video clips, and etc. It is very simple to manipulate 3D panorama. By the left mouse button you can rotate the image in the desired direction (click and hold). It is enough to spin the mouse wheel to zoom in or zoom out.
Some spherical 3d panoramas can be connected to each other, thus creating virtual tour (or 3D tour). By one click on the pointer in 3D panorama you make a real journey moving from one panorama to another (for example, from one room to another) or even to external web resource. For a better orientation of virtual tour visitors, 3D panorama can be accompanied by interactive map with the “radar”, showing the direction and the angle of view. The virtual tour is ideal for presentations of buildings and interiors, city tours and museum excursions, and much more. To display 3D virtual panoramas and 3D tours you do not need to install any additional programs, just Web browser.
