Our most ambitious project yet, the result of two years' work and still in its initial stages, our virtual tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Norway's mining town, Røros, has been published for the first time.

 

Containing a staggering 125 panoramas at the date of publication, this Google Map-driven website using our own technology is surely the largest virtual tour ever created. With full HD panoramas along with gigapixel imagery and a unique and captivating UI, Røros 360 has been acclaimed throughout the world as a tour in a class of its own.

 

With more town tours on the way, this is a unique and exciting form of promotion for not only tourist centres, but also businesses.

 

Take a test drive and see what how your local town can benefit from our services.

 

We are pleased to announce our new large-format service, providing detailed imagery that allows the viewer to zoom in to a field of view of just one half of a degree - the equivalent of just a few millimeters' distance from the object.

 

Ideal for insurance and reference purposes, this stunning panoramic techique is perfect for galleries wanting to show works for sale, connoisseurs cataloguing or insuring their collection, art historians and restorers requiring a detailed record of work.

 

Made internet ready with a multi-resolution output, or provided just as an attractively-packaged presentation CD, large-format and gigapixel imagery has the potential to render images in more detail than ever imagined.

Tylldal church - The Sanctuary Ceiling

 

Rikdommene fra Gamle Alvdal Kirke - Online Exhibition

     

It is no longer enough simply to have business premises, especially when it comes to shopping malls and other centers of commerce. Today, chains and independent stores alike need to find a new way of marketing their product, of enticing potential customers.

 

Utilizing the capabilities of faster and more stable internet connections, and new concepts in tour delivery, many of which we have developed ourselves,virtual imagery provides businesses with the potential to show customers that the packaging is not restricted to products alone.

 

This HDR three-shot tour, taken for Europe's largest electical chain stores, shows this potential through a unique system of including video footage in the TV department and Yamaha Concept Studio, contact forms, the inclusion of green-screen technology for integrated presentations and the possibility to download presentation material in the form of pdf files.

 

The stunning ceiling of the sanctuary at the little log-built church at Tylldalen, tucked away in the Østerdalen valleys, has been captured in large-scale format for the first time.

 

Once an important stopping-point for pligrims, the church's lavish decoration of the 1730s managed to survive the Puritan destruction of the 19th-century. In particular, the ceiling, complete with the king's monogram was protected with a false ceiling. On its restoration in the 1930s, the monogram was once again revealled in all its glory.

All 24 images are processed using HDR photography. Such large-scale tours as these present many problems for the programmer to present material in an easy-to-use and appealing manner. We think that, through our Flash-animated Graphic User Interface, we have managed to address this problem in a unique and refreshing manner.
