Oaksmere Design are always looking for opportunities to improve the service we provide and enjoy working with technological advances. As such, we have invested in a number of cameras capable of capturing immersive 360º images, enabling us to create virtual tours for our clients; allowing a walkthrough experience available from any internet capable device. We incorporate information from the client’s maintenance database within the tour, allowing the user to click on any item, while on their walkthrough, to open up the corresponding Web-based maintenance data page for that item. Other useful information could be similarly embedded including; technical data, pictures and video for example.
To continually improve our service, we also have the capability to create a 3D model of the space photographed, as well as a floor plan, in addition to the walkthrough tour mode. Recent advances in the technology now allow us the option of uploading these models to the publicly accessible Google Streetview.
During the creation process image capture is important during hours of minimal movement. The interface with which the tour is controlled has become more intuitive with additional features are now available. Interactive maps allow you to see where you are within the facility, colour coded nodes allow the user to see which images within the tour have clickable links embedded and which type of item they relate to.
The tours have been very well received by our clients and their maintenance departments. Tours can incorporate multiple floors, external facades and back of house areas with equal clarity and depth of information. The option to choose where you wish to be via the map or walk through the store has been commended.
One of our capturing and creation techniques allows us the ability to incorporate feedback from the end users into the interface and tours themselves. Thus, producing an excellent tool that can be personalised for each client’s individual use. Ideas that arrive after the tour creation can be included at any time.
A second option we can provide has software that has the advantage of self-creation of the walkthrough tour, needing only to have the addition of clickable links added afterwards. Although this solution is possibly not suitable for large scale operations, this method can capture smaller spaces with a lot more clarity and realism. We use this technology to specialise in specific locations in larger facilities or capture entire properties with smaller layouts.
