QTVR Panoramas

Bloody Lane, Antietam

The scene above is a good example of a QTVR panorama.

QTVR Panoramas are virtual reality scenes into which the viewer is immersed. In other words, they provide a view similar to that seen when the user stands in one place and looks around. In addition to allowing a view of 360 degrees, they may allow limited movement up and down. QTVR panoramas also allow the viewer to zoom-in (using the option key) and zoom-out (using the control key) to further examine the scene.

QTVR Panoramas allow the user to visit places that it might not be feasible for them to visit in person.

Panoramas, such as the one shown above, can be linked together to form virtual walk-throughs.
