Virtual tours have improved over the past few years in many ways with improvements in photography, technology and design. One traditional limitation with then is that 360 photography is often limited to the ground. For some large scale tours / mega tours, wouldn’t it be nice if you could take the same technology but take it while in the sky? With 360 drone photography, we can take stunning 360 images in the sky and use them to enhance a virtual tour. Let’s see how 360 drone photography can help enhance a virtual tour.

How 360 Drone Photography Enhances A Virtual Tour

It helps To Understand A Larger Area in a virtual tour

One of the great benefits of using 360 drone photography is that it helps understand a larger area. By flying the drone around in all directions, you can capture an image in the sky, giving a much more complete picture of what is going on. This can be particularly helpful when viewing a business or location from afar, allowing you to get an idea of its layout and design that may not be visible from ground level.

360 aerial photography can give you a great view of an area that would be difficult or impossible to see from the ground. By zooming in and out, you can see different parts of the area. This can help you understand the layout of the area and make decisions about where to fly your drone.

360 drone photography can be a very effective way to change the perspective of a virtual tour. By using this type of photography, viewers can see the tour from a different angle and gain a new understanding of the location. This type of photography is beneficial for locations that are difficult to access or for areas difficult to photograph from ground level.

Case Study: Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley is a large and expansive multi-site facility. This ranges from the accommodation, guest facilities, event venue spaces (on-site and remote), as well as connected businesses which are offsite. The virtual tour below was able to find all those various elements together through the use of 360 aerial photography.

Connect Areas That You Previously Could Not

Using this technology, you can create a virtual tour that is more detailed and interconnected than ever before. This allows potential customers to have a better understanding of your business or product without ever having to visit in person. Additionally, 360 drone photography is also great for capturing unique perspectives that would otherwise be unavailable.

In many cases you can see the entire length of the location to have a good overall understanding of it.
