Serving Online Interactive Panoramas Across all Platforms and Devices:
The IRC increasingly needs to display interactive 360° panoramas in web browsers across all platforms, including mobile devices. In the past, we've relied on external websites to host these, but these sites have begun adding advertising, links that redirect users away from the site, and other features that compromise the integrity of the information and presentation. The goal of this project is to provide a solution that can be served in-house, is secure and flexible, and seamlessly supports any device, operating system, and browser.
Development of this technology is almost complete and is currently being put to use supporting ongoing websites with virtual tours, including the National Academy of Sciences Great Hall website.
