The orbitlab team was contracted already in 2007 to develop a virtual tour for all four hotels of the AQUILA brand.
The people of Aquila were amongst the first in the tourism domain who came to recognize the benefits of virtual tours and the importance to showcase the hotels with an interactive and pleasant way for their guests and potential visitors. In 2008 when they were finished renovating the hotels we were contracted once again to capture spherical panoramas of the new rooms and shared spaces. The finished Virtual Tour consists of more than 60 spherical panoramas and many interactive ways to navigate through the hotels, a custom interface and other. Besides the web version of the application we also prepared a cdrom version.
