My new tour concept online

We are proud to show the first tour (Hotel Castle Gabelhofen) based on our new concept:
The concept development was minor a "technical show (what´s possible...)" but a thing of "how should things (infospots, text, detailpictures) work for none-computerfreaks.

it comes with:
* a new infomode concept: switching ("i") disappears/appears all spots, navigation, buttons (except nadir hotspot)
(designed for objects with much more spots than here)
--> better example for this is our Demotour St.Peters Church , Salzburg (scene 3).
* thumb-selector with bigger "onover" scene-preview (size depening on actual windowsize)
* variable textfield for scene-title and description
* info spots showing (mini-) content for "what info to get if i click"
* detailpictures to click (size depening on actual windowsize) - automatically assignet with text if text is in its
xml-place (see Demotour St.Peters Church , Salzburg (scene 3)
* map with syncronized blinking mapspots
* non-rotating nadir (distorted hotspot...)
* multilevel cubic panos (8000x4000 px each)

* little planet intro

feedbacks are very wellcome!
best regards from

Interesting pop up previews (may be smaller size?)
At my 1920x1200 not the best performance (core2duo 7200 2GHz). That's why I don't use fullscreen by default.
And try radial gradient mask for radars. Create layer with radial gradient (black to transparency or white to transparency) >Copy to all layers>place every gradient to hotspot> delete non selected area with feather 1px(for smoothing edges) If you have any questions i can explain better.

Very nice tour. I like the preview of hotspots on the map and the effect of the text field from left down side.
Congratulation! You have made a very interactive tour.

1) Apartment

- Apartment virtual tour
It has: map(with buttons(map 1, map2 and close map)), photo gallery, radars, tranzition beetween panoramas

2) Romanian Spa

Very nice pictures and a great tour concept. But I think the architectural view takes a bit of its brilliance. Panning vertically feels like back then when I was in the forest and found that funny mushrooms.

Thank you all for your advices!

In the meantime i went on further in this concept and did a huge job last year (170 panos, and it still continues...). I even won a competition with it; see the thread here !

The pop up size depends on your actual windowsize; the bigger the
window, the bigger the preview - it is sth. i only could solve using
Of course i could code a smaller value for that percentage, but i think it´s OK (and - most important - my customers do) :-)

But I think the architectural view takes a bit of its brilliance
You definitifely are right, but it is a compromise i choose for best optical performance (NO wavey line) if the user has flashplayer10-plugin installed. Wavey lines is a "NO GO"! if there is a way off...
