The Airpano.ru has announced two virtual tours which consist of 20 spherical panoramas, shot over the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky city and the islands of Northern Kuril chain. The project is created with the grant support of the Russian Geographical Society.
The severe weather - storm, rain, fog, impugned the success of the expedition. But thanks to the perseverance the photographers managed to make the unique shooting on the Onekotan island in the caldera of volcano Krenitsyn, make the photos of the magnificent views of Paramushiro – the biggest island of the Kuriles, and misty landscape of the Shumshu island – the northernmost of the Kuril Islands. In the final part of the journey the weather relented, and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky situated on the shores of the Avacha Bay appeared in all its glory.
The Spherical Panoramas differ from usual photos with that fact that the viewer himself can rotate the image in any direction, change the viewing angle, zoom in and out individual sections of the panorama. The technology is that on the big monitor the viewer creates almost complete sense of presence in the air above the place where the survey was conducted.
The uniqueness of this project is primarily in that there have been no virtual tours with air spherical panoramas of the Northern Kuriles of such high-quality shooting as that.
The AirPano does not stop on that has been achieved and is planning to carry on shooting of the aeropanoramas and creating of virtual tours to the most interesting cities and corners of the planet.
