Olympics VR – First 360 Degree Tour of London Olympic Park

To celebrate the London 2012 Olympics, I produced the most comprehensive collection of interactive imagery of the Olympic Park Venues during the London Test Events, allowing viewers to take a virtual tour of the Olympic Park venues.

In total, there are 55 360º spherical panoramas, 6 gigapixel panoramas and 2 3D photographs to be viewed with glasses or on a glasses-free 3D display. Those lucky enough to witness the official opening of the stadium on 5th May were even able to tag themselves with Facebook in a super high resolution ‘gigapixel’ image.

Optimized for mobile devices, users were able to zoom from one side of a venue to the other and explore the venues like never before.

The imagery, which was syndicated by Press Association and showcased by ESPN, was viewed all over the world and helped to celebrate the opening of the largest sporting event in the world.
