Virtual Tours allow us to capture one of our favorite types of photography- aerial 360 panoramic. This fascinating technique of photographing the entire surroundings of the aircraft allows produces a truly engaging experience.
Virtual Tours take interactive experiences to the next level. A series of 360-degree panoramic photos are linked to simulate what is seen, all around, at several viewpoints. This is much like Google Street View. A virtual tour may even be better than being on site. Additional layers of data can be presented. Information callouts, multimedia clips, sound effects animations and other special features can be embedded directly into the 360 photo. Viewer engagement is propelled to a fully immersive experience. Furthermore, Elevated Element makes virtual tours easy to access, view and share on a variety of devices. Whether viewers use a standard computer, tablet, mobile phone or VR headset to explore your 360 virtual tour, it will respond, and look great. Our custom web tools that stand alone, or act as a sub-page on an existing website, make it all possible.
Virtual Tours run a wide range of uses. On one hand they are very simple user interfaces that link up a series of 360 photos to show how a site looks. On the other hand they can be complex, by adding layers of additional data and visualizations. Allowing the user to move freely throughout the environment, rather than limit their movement, increases interaction. Data overlays can also be used to illustrate changes over time and place. Viewers can truly be transported virtually. With this in mind, some real-world situations that virtual tours would be a fantastic tool for include travel/tourism, real estate, hospitality, schools/universities and museums. We mainly make them for land development and historic preservation. However, we always welcome new ideas for applying this exciting technology.
Beyond making your company or project look extraordinarily innovative, there are other benefits of using a virtual tour. They increase your Google business search profile ranking. Market research has shown 44% of business searches utilize mapping features, and the results they enjoy is an in-person visit 41% of the time. Web pages or listings with virtual tours are two times more likely to motivate a consumer into action. The tour will increase the amount of time that visitor spends engaged with your post. A 360 tour imparts a wealth of information. This translates into increased interest and overall buy-in. Your hours of operation are twenty-four-seven with a virtual tour. In fact, virtual tour offerings may get visitors and other media sites to share your link, resulting in even more exposure.
