How Does A Virtual Tour Work
A series of 360º photos are taken at regular intervals. These photos are then stitched together giving a 360º view of the area.
The viewer can then by dragging their mouse look at whatever they want in the area. They can move in any direction they wish. This gives the view a feel for the room that they are in. Further to this, they can spend as much time as the want in the room.
