• What is a “Virtual 360° Panorama and Virtual Tour”?
It is the art of capturing or creating a complete scene as a single image, as viewed when rotating about a single central position. A VR 360° panorama is generally a wide photographic image encompassing a 360-degree circle, and can encompass an entire spherical view. The final digital image, known as a “virtual (VR) 360° panorama”, is viewed through an interactive software interface (?). The viewer is at the centre of a virtual cylinder or sphere onto which is projected a wrap-around image. Within this image, the viewer can rotate horizontally and vertically, as if they were immersed within the real-world scene.
A virtual tour connects 2 or more three-dimensional, spherical VR 360° panoramas which enable the user to become completely immersed in the photograph. Never before has a technology so thoroughly captured the way we see the world. The user can navigate around the image by simply using their mouse. By clicking on 'hot spots' on the actual image or on a room on an “interactive floor plan” (?), the user can move around the scene by “walking” from room to room as if they were actually there.

• What are interactive floor plans?
At Calaido we use two-dimensional interactive floor plans as a navigational aid to help users navigate around a property, a featured accommodation or a tourist site. While interactive floor plans are mainly used in real estate, virtual tours and are completely optional. Calaido can produce interactive floor plans for use with virtual tours of car interiors, boats, caravans, etc. If a floor plan or layout can be drawn, Calaido can produce an interactive floor plan. So how does one of these floor plans work? The user simply clicks on a room or area on the floor plan to have the virtual tour image for that part of the property jump up onto the computer screen. Interactive floor plans provide the user with a quick and accurate visual idea of the layout and space of your featured site. For example, you will be supplying realistic images of the relative location and the size of each room in a home, AND in relation to the scale of the property. If a viewer happens to get lost while taking a virtual tour, never fear! …the interactive floor plan shows exactly where you are by highlighting the current location.
• How can I present an interactive floor plan?
VR 360° panoramas and VR tours can be published in online production (your homepage), offline production (multimedia CDs, projections) and print production (postcards, flyers, brochures, advertisements, trade magazines, consumer magazines, outdoor signs, tradeshow pamphlets). Content can be adapted to your corporate design. Our high-definition photography will allow large prints to be made from our panoramas.

- a creative-photography fee
- a charge for post-production editing and preparation, and
- a “Rights and Usage” fee which is determined by your choice of several options. (See below for details.)
That is why we cannot quote a specific price without prior consultation with you, because we must first establish your needs and preferences.
