Dubai will soon launch a project to showcase full 360 degrees virtual tours of the city, Crown Prince and chairman of Dubai Executive Council HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has announced.
Sheikh Hamdan said in a post on his Instagram page: "Soon, we will launch Dubai360.com, the world’s leading immersive virtual city tour. It is a groundbreaking website that will enable you to explore Dubai from anywhere in the world."
The website will present fully interactive 360 degree panoramic timelapse video showcasing Dubai’s cultural and modern attractions, said a Wam report.
As a sneak preview of the kind of content to come, the website showcases an experience from the top of the control tower at Dubai International Airport. The timelapse video was shot over a 30-hour period depicting over 1,000 planes landing, taking off, and taxiing at the airport, the website said.
Viewers can control the direction and zoom of the camera as the timelapse plays, virtually exploring the airport in an unprecedented manner.
