Dubai 360 has launched the first of a kind online interactive tour.
It’s both the world’s largest interactive city tour, and the first to exclusively use fully interactive and immersive 360 degree panoramic photo, time-lapse and video content.
The tour allows viewers to explore every angle of Dubai from the comfort of their own home. It was developed over an eighteen-month period and utilises 1,298 pieces of panoramic video and photo content.
Users can see a bird’s eye view of Dubai from the top of the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa, before travelling to the luxurious Royal Suite at the Burj Al Arab Hotel, all at the click of a button.
A custom interface enables viewers to interact with Dubai’s landmarks through a number of viewing options, including rectilinear and ‘Little Planet’ and ‘fish eye’ views.
Users can also share their favourite views through social media channels.
Ismaeil Al Hashmi, project manager, said: “Dubai 360 is illustrative of what Dubai stands for. It started off as an idea and was brought to life through the passion of talented and committed individuals. The project showcases the very best of what Dubai has to offer and we will continue to use the platform to demonstrate the progress the city makes.
“With Dubai360.com, whether you live in Dubai or are planning a visit, you can discover something new in the city every day. From the cultural area of Bastakiya to luxury hotels and the Dubai International Airport, this project has something for everyone, making it an exciting way to explore Dubai.”
Dubai360.com will continue to update images, to capture the growing city.
