About


WHAT WE DO
in short we make virtual tours of trails in conjunction with Google Street View and other platforms
see more under "related topics" OTHER


DNT BE CONFUSED - BE INFUSED
Below is an intro to basics
When we make free pages we use all sorts of different widgets to test and create ideas for users to copy so take your time and select the one that's best for you

Our focus is: tourism trails and getting people out for life be in it

feedback appreciated / contributors welcome 

v20200801

360 Photo SPHERE
Virtual tours are created using a special image / photo known as Spherical (globe) 

MAKE THEM FREE
with smartphone only using special app to auto stitch example google street view FREE app

NOT FREE: dedicated camera (from $200 to $10,000) or a normal camera with stitching software (high end)

VIRTUAL TOURS & GOOGLE MAPS
images are then loaded into sites / platforms (see below)
then using the features of each platform you can connect the photos as well as other options such as embed videos, links to other sites

best viewed with smartphone and rotate to any angle, the ultimate experience is using VR (Virtual reality) googles

SOCIAL MEDIA
some platforms recognise the format 

PLATFORMS 
3rd party sites and google maps have gains and pains (noted below)

Platforms


v20181112
virtual tour created using 360 spherical images 

Point of Difference 

RoundMe 
Photo within photo (bubble thumbnail) + hotspots 
share link to individual photos within tour
map view - see images in map (not all images are mapped)

Klapty 
Photo within photo (bubble thumbnail) + hotspots 

Kuula 
Photo within photo (bubble thumbnail) + hotspots 
Floor plan view: flat image with hotspots

SeekBeak 
Photo within photo (bubble thumbnail) + hotspots 
map view - see images in map (not all images are mapped)

Google St view: 
very basic, images can be connected but no option to include text, symbols


Many more host sites available, a summary  can be found by searching this site for 360 virtual tour host sites


Make your own 360 with no gadgets - just native smartphone camera 

Google provide a FREE app that controls the standard smartphone camera to build a 360 spherical image








Seekbeak


unique benefit + link to each image share or embed
images appear by map location (good for larger areas and trails)

as at 30/07/20 images not connected to each other to make a seamless movement (we will join them up when we have spare time)

In the meantime this platform shows images in gps map (sample below)

Google SV

Google maps "Step inside" is for beyond the street 

The concept is quite limited meaning we can join the images together but can not add 
extra features like help links, signs, messages and pop ups

it's also (at times) and and editing nightmare in terms of 
correct orientation  
the preference is upload video and let the AI extract images but video is lower quality

teach them how to fish and they can feed themselves 
below is a intro on how to use google maps "step inside" so you can D.I.Y.
