Dallas Historical Society – Interactive Building Tour

by DigitalDoyle

DHS Interactive Building Tour

This is a brand new web retrofit of the interactive building tour kiosk I originally created way back in 2001 for the Dallas Historical Society.

Amy Stewart and I came up with the interface, I did all the interactive programming and development, and Paul Everitt did the amazing 360 degree photography of all the rooms, murals, and statues. I also designed, engineered, and fabricated the kiosk cabinet, …but that’s another story.

The original app was developed in Macromedia Director and was never designed for deployment the web. So I re-wrote it from scratch in Flash, coding it all using object-oriented AS3. The app only loads up the interface initially, and each piece of content for the rooms is dynamically loaded when the user selects to explore it. The text is stored externally as well, so that it can be edited by the staff at DHS.

Check it out for yourself, here.

 

So what can we do for you?

Have seen many 360 views and this is the best by far, great work.

Thanks so much for the kind words! Credit for those fine 360 panos goes to Paul Everitt. He did a fantastic job with them.

I’m also using new Pano software to present them; Pano2VR and Object2VR by Garden Gnome Software [http://gardengnomesoftware.com].

I’ll be using this software for future 360 View projects I have in mind.

Thanks for stopping by!
