Taking the World Wide Panorama Project further.
Additonal information for Event WWP906 : TransportationThis page is for additional 360 degree photography.
The world Wide Panorama is a website showcasing 360 degree photography from around the world. The 360s are shown as interactive Q.T.V.R. movies.(Quick Time Virtual Reality). It is possible to create interactive virtual tours using 360 degree photographs by linking the 360s together with hotspots. The 360 degree photos are created using specialised stitching software that joins together a series of images into a cylinder or sphere. These images have to be taken with a special panoramic tripod known as a VR tripod. There are lots of websites with 360 VR tours on them, go and take a look.
