A Helping Hand — 360° Tour

April 13, 2020 by Sam Slater

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads around the world, we are facing unprecedented changes to our lives both personally and professionally. We at Concept3D have felt it right along with you. We want to do what we can to help during these times so we have opened our full Enterprise 360° Tour to anyone who needs it. 

If this could help your organization or institution please fill out this form

Within one business day, someone will reach out with access and instructions to create your own 5-stop virtual tour at no-cost. For today we plan to allow for the access till at least June 30, 2020. However, we are keeping a close eye on the need to augment and/or replace onsite visits and events.

The 360° Tour

The 360° Tour gives you a powerful, VR-ready platform that you can use to create a panoramic image of your space and connect them together into a powerful interactive experience for your virtual visitors. Let’s take a look at some of the features that your social distancing visitors will be able to enjoy while they are waiting for the stay at home orders to be lifted.

Intuitive content management system (CMS)

The heart of the software is the easy-to-use content management system, Tour Builder. From the CMS, you’ll be able to create a virtual tour within 30 minutes. 

Panoramas

The use of panoramas to create your tour makes it easy for anyone to create the content that is needed to drive a convincing virtual tour. Because they cover a full 360 degrees of vision, your virtual visitors will be able to see everything that they’d see if there were actually standing in the spot where the panorama was taken in either an image or 360° video. 

Mobile ready

Today, more people access the internet on a mobile device than they do on a desktop device. And with the entire family in the home at once, the desktop computer is probably seeing a lot of extra duty. Concept3D’s interactive maps are mobile-ready so that people who want to take your virtual tour can do so from whichever device they find more convenient. Perhaps a whole family can take your tour together without having to share the same screen.

VR optimized

Those beautiful panoramas look nice on any screen, but they go from a viewing experience to a lived experience when your users step inside of a virtual reality headset to take your tour. In VR, you’ll be able to provide them the closest experience possible to being on the in-person tour that they may have been hoping for before plans were derailed. The experience is technology agnostic and will work with a wide range of virtual reality headset so you can reach as many people as possible.

Accessibility enabled

Now more than ever, it’s important that nobody feels left out. Our content management system has tools available for you to create alt-tagging for increased accessibility. With the ability to create a text-only version of your map, along with ARIA tagging so that screen readers can do their job, we’ve got all of your accessibility needs covered.

We are here

We are incredibly proud of the Tour Builder CMS but if you run into issues our help site has videos for you or you can always contact us at inquiries@concept3d.com. Or if you need an interactive 3D Map please contact us here
