We provide a straightforward, versatile mechanism for creating free-form and guided tours by linking together spherical images.
Spherical images are images which allow the viewer to look in any direction. Think IMAX as opposed to standard cinema, or the way in which the viewer can look around in Google Street View to look in any direction, even straight up or down.
Sure. Here's a quick tour of an apartment. Before clicking on the link, you move around by
finding yellow hotspots and clicking on them; move the image by dragging with your mouse.
Or, if you're using a tablet, you can drag with a finger and poke hotspots to move. Got it?
Here's the tour: 209 Wellington Apartment
Or, if you've a Google Cardboard, start here.
The first thing you'll need is a suitable collection of panoramic photos. You can capture these with anything from an Android phone using Photo Sphere, through a Ricoh Theta, a camera which shoots spherical images, to a DSLR with a panoramic head, such as the Tomshot.
Once you've got some, then you'll need to sign up for an account with us. Whilst we're in development, this service is free to use and will remain so for individuals producing not-for-profit tours.
To start the sign-up process, enter your e-mail address below. We'll send you a link to complete sign up, including choosing a password.
Each image can have audio uploaded which will play when that image is viewed - ideal for tours where there's information to convey other than visually.
Our collaboration features are in test right now - multiple people can take the same tour. Very cool and worth waiting for..!
