We were excited to work with Residential Services again after taking the Class of 2018 GigaPan photo and timelapse, which were a huge success. We worked with them to create an interactive Virtual Tour for three typical rooms in various residence halls on campus. Users can view a 360 degree panorama of the room, and zoom into the image to view different parts of the room in more detail.
After planning and getting live tours of the rooms, we professionally lit each room and photographed 360 degree panoramas using our Canon 5DmkII DSLR camera. We then brought the images into a stitching program and fine tuned the images with the assistance of our stitching expert Joel Ness of the Newberry Digitization project. These images were sent to a program which generates interactive HTML5 panoramas which we delivered to Residential Services for use on their website. You can see the implemented virtual tours here:
