What is a virtual project?

It’s the combination of 360-degree photographs and a User Interface (UI).

Basically, the 360 photos highlight the project and image quality.
The UI highlights the project’ interaction for the users.

Uses and Information

A virtual project is an advanced communication and marketing tool, and it is commonly used by high-end hotels, the real estate industry and museums. Its purpose is to visit multiple areas (360-degree photos) and to interact with the project’ User Interface (UI).

Technically speaking, a virtual project is like a website: its functionalities/UIs are customizable and it can be updated.

Virtual projects must be hosted on a web server to become available online, used on a business website, shared on social platforms, etc.

My professional virtual projects services offers a range of projects to be build as virtual tours and virtual exhibitions.

According to the UI and the goal of a virtual project, a project will take the form of a virtual visit or a virtual exhibition.

Virtual Tour

A virtual tour is typically a property visit.

Here, the UI mainly focuses on navigating from a 360 photo to another, the possibility of displaying a 2D floor plan, showing contact details, sharing the project on social platforms, the use of a photo gallery, and among other possibilities.

Virtual Exhibition

A virtual exhibition project is a tool focused on communication and is usually more interaction-based with its user interface – unlike virtual tours.

Here, the UI takes up most of the project, with for example: interactive elements, multiple languages, audio descriptions, download a document, and among other possibilities.

Process

1.

Validating your user interface requirements

First, we should meet to decide how many 360-photos your project will need. Once this been decided, it’s time to discuss the UI, as this is a very important aspect of virtual projects.

My professional UIs are not made with templates, every aspect is customizable.

Also, we’ll confirm your brand color codes and your website font to apply these elements to your virtual project. I’ll create a mock up for you to agree and then it’s on to the next step!

Next I need to take the 360 photos.
For the best photo shoot, we need the right weather conditions. Shooting with people around is possible, but in most cases these people should be actors.

It’s best to have everything in place first to get perfect shots rather than rely on post-editing and extra cost to a project.

Shooting and editing the 360 photographs

3.

Build the complete preview project

At this stage, you will send me all the ressources and media that will be use on your project, such as: logo, texts, documents, photos, etc.

We will also have to discuss the project thumbnail picture, its title and description. These elements will be used when the project will be shared on social networks.

For each step I will upload the required content to the preview project so you can see how the project is evolving.

After the final project has been agreed, it’s time for you to use it on your website, to share it on social platforms, etc.

Managing a virtual project is like a website: contents, UIs and 360-photos can be updated and revamped if required.

Maintenance and support are provided to ensure that the project is always 100% operational.

FAQs

Do you have another question, even technical, to which you’d like to have a clear answer? Contact me.

Two options:

  • I’m providing you the link/iframe of your project for your webmaster to embed it on your website.
  • I’m providing you a link/iframe of an animation of your project for your webmaster to embed it on your website.

The second option is usually more apreciated. In fact, most of business websites wants to add some information next to their project iframe, such as: when the 360 photos were shot, short intro about their project, etc.
Check this link to see a result.

Not too much.
For instance, a full size uncompressed photo (took with an iPhone or any camera) will take more to load that a virtual project.

Yes.

  • Using a serious web server to host a project protects business websites from potential hacks.
  • 100s of simultaneous views at the same time shouldn’t be a problem as serious web servers provides either enough connected bandwidth or implemented measures against overload scenarios.
