Our 360º Tour platform uses 360 photospheres / panoramas to show off an in-depth and immersive view of what it is like to experience a physical location.
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 left to right image.
A 360 Photosphere is a full 360 degree image.
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. Users will be able to see from a wider range shot than you would with a typical static image. Users can only go from left to right, and at some point, the image ends.
360 photosphere, users are able to experience the whole 360-degree sphere of view. It will give an end-user a more immersive experience.
Which photography type does Concept3D prefer?
360 photospheres. The ability to be able to look 360 degrees can help an end-user understand exactly what it is like to visit a city, campus and location without being there.
