I have an job offer and would need some help from you.
One company, campsite to be correct, has a campsite map with each camping pitch photographed (normal photo). Now they want to make a 360° of each pitch (over 500 pitches) and place it on a campsite map.
What is the best way to place 360° photos. Should I just send a 360° photo file to web designers, or can this be made with a direct link to each separate 360° tour within a virtual tour?
Out of VR softwares my idea is PanoVR or 3DVista. Are there possibilities in each of these to make a direct URL link to each spor on the virtual tour?
Yes, in Pano2VR you can do that. It is possible to directly link to a panorama in a virtual tour.
If you want a virtual tour for the website with map and additional info in the panoramas this will be the ideal solution.
Not sure about 3DVista, as I do not us it.
If you just send the spherical images to t he webdesigner they will have to come up with a solution for the viewer (to display the panos). In general you can decide which way works best for you and what is more economical.
You also can outsource the tourbuilding to an expert and then hand the final tour to the webdesigner how easily can integrate this into your website.
