Our 360º Tour platform uses 360photospheres/panoramas to show off an in-depth and immersive experience view of what it is like to experience your physical location. It is not only its own URL, but also has its own set of additional features such as 360 video, hotspots, and lead generation forms. Both utilize 360 photospheres/panoramas to give a true “immersive experience”.
What is the difference between 360 panorama and 360 photosphere. They are both 360-degree images that can show a wider view than a typical static image. They are both slightly more interactive. Here are the two definitions of each type of photography. Then we can dissect and apply it to our platform from there.
A 360 Panorama is:
A 360 Photosphere is:
How does that apply to the Concept3D platform and why does this matter?
If a 360 panorama is uploaded to our mapping or 360º Tour platform. You will be able to see from a wider range shot than you would with a typical static image. You can only go from left to right, and at some point, the image ends. As opposed to a 360 photosphere, as it implies in the name, can you not only see from left to right but also, up and down and you are able to experience the whole 360-degree sphere of view. It will give your end-user the ability to have a more immersive experience to see how your location looks without standing there in person.
Which photography type does Concept3D prefer?
As an immersive experience-based company/solution we always aim for as impactful of an image as possible. What we prefer is the 360 photosphere, the ability to be able to look all around really can help an end-user understand exactly what it is like to visit your city, campus, and location without being there. Even though both types of photography are assumed to be the same, there is a huge difference between them within in our system.
