Virtual Tour

A set of images, Video clips, Panoramic pictures, recorded sounds and text files which are commonly referred to as virtual tours, allow a person to experience a place or an object without the obligation of physical presence. The purpose of a virtual tour is eliminating the limitations of time and space. For example, one can easily visit a historical monument or an exhibition that’s being held in another country or has been held in the past by the means of virtual tours.

We all have encountered basic web pages that provide their visitors a virtual tour by giving out small images and simple plans. We can’t expect all users to welcome these examples and use them in nowadays competitive environment in internet based services. An appropriate virtual tour must interact with the users and provide them the information they need with realistic UI that’s comparative with the reality.

  The production process of the virtual tour

In order to create a virtual tour, our experts shoot some 360º photos of different parts of your project (i.e. Entrance, Rooms, Lobby, … ). These photos are placed in the virtual tour in a way that your customers can look around in the project, enter every room, climb the stairs and literally go through every corner of the project and collect all the information they need. The customer can gain information about anything in the project by simply clicking on them.

The virtual tour gives you the ability to invite your customers to visit your project without spending too much money, time or even without the obligation of physical presence.
