A quick-time panorama controlled interactively provides the user with a circumferential view from a fixed position. It is also possible to look up and down.
This allows for a superb spacial impression of space and places. In addition the display window can be zoomed in and out (shift-key for +; ctrl-key for -).
From a technological viewpoint there is practically no difference between if user were to view the virtual scene or if they would take a look-around in the real existing vicinity. Therefore a panoramic view is suitable for a survey in a virtual neolithic nave as well as for a presentation of the exhibition halls of a museum or for the presentation of a restored historical monument that is situated outdoors.
We generate a quicktime-panorama for both worlds.
A Panoramic view is especially suitable for CD-ROM and presentations based on the internet.
