virtual tour of london

This week at Virtual Vue we came across this incredible virtual tour of London.  Photographers set a world record for the larges panoramic photo with an amazing 320 gigapixel, 360 degree interactive image of London.

The images were shot on the 29th floor of the British Telecommunications tower soon after the 2012 London Olympic Games.

This tour consists of over 48,000 still images stitched together over a space of three months to create a 98 meter wide; 24 meter tall panoramic to be used as the virtual tour.

The clarity of this tour is incredible and allows you to zoom up to an impressive 20 miles away, whilst still keeping the resolution crystal clear.

This week here at Virtual Vue we came across a fantastic virtual tour taken by photographer Gerald Donovan of the city of Dubai from on top of the Burj Khalifa building.   This gigapixel tour consists of 48 panoramic images each with a resolution of 80 megapixels!

This remarkable achievement from Donovan is a fantastic advertisement for virtual tours, and shows that they are becoming increasingly more in demand.  Donovan taking virtual tours to this level could mean a whole new realm for interactive photography, and who knows this form could be the new way we explore the world; at the click of a finger!

Composed of over 70 individual photos, it recreates the view Tom Cruise made famous as he sat at the tower’s peak during the filming of Mission Impossible Four, ‘Ghost Protocol’.

Virtual Vue have recently been commissioned to create a stunning marketing package for Chesterton Humberts in central London. This included a fully immersive Virtual Tour, a still high definition photo shoot, and a fully detailed floor plan.

The prestigious £2.5 million property is prime London real estate and required an outstanding job to capture the penthouse apartment in its best light.

After consideration, it was decided that to create maximum impact and truly stand out for the competition, a twilight shoot would be the best option.

The results are spectacular, with views of the city and the London eye, Virtual Vue certainly did it justice.
