Everything You Need For Your Virtual Tour

You need a virtual tour. Let us help!

You can trust our photographers, tour designers/developers, map illustrators, VR developers, and drone pilots to help guide you through the project and take your virtual tour from concept to reality.

Custom 360° Virtual Tours

Our 360° virtual tours are custom-designed to help you tell your story online.  Every tour is different, so we work with your marketing team to determine what mix of panoramic photos, maps, videos, photo slideshows, text, directions, action links, sounds, and pdf downloads will create the most comprehensive tool for your marketing team.

Our experienced team has created over 500 virtual tours since 2008, so we can handle projects large and small.  Most tours take about 2-3 weeks to complete, and you’ll never pay recurring fees.

Interactive Maps

Interactive maps are effective for businesses that don’t need (or are not quite ready for) 360° panoramas.

Rather, we use the photos, videos, and map graphics that you already have in your marketing library. We then create “tourstops” on the map that will show the videos or slideshows. We use a template design, which keeps the price point low.

360° Photography

Stunning 360° photography is what Circlescapes is known for! Our panoramic photographers are experts at making a scene look like your real eye would see it if you were there in person.

We focus on the little things, like:

  • Staging the spaces with people and props to add life, warmth and color
  • Shooting multiple exposures (HDR), so you can see both inside the rooms, and outside the windows
  • Positioning the camera so the main focus of the shot is close by, but there’s also something of interest in every quadrant
  • Ensuring the photo stitching has no seams, warps, or jagged connection points
  • Removing the tripod, so you can look up, down and all the way around

Types of photos we can shoot

Organic Scenes —When people are moving around the camera and we can’t ask them to stop, we will shoot up to 100 shots as people walk by, then combine the best images into one, seamless 360° photo.

Staged Scenes — In controlled environments (like a classroom), we will work with you to stage people doing activities all around the camera, When the camera is focused on them, we ask them to stay still for a moment while we click the shutter. We then combine all the images into one complete 360° photo.

Empty Scenes and HDR — Sometimes you just want to show a space as it might look on an in-person tour. When those spaces have windows, we use HDR photography to ensure that both the interior and exterior appear as your real-eye would see it — No blown out windows or super-dark shadows!


Still Images — We can also shoot still aerial photos, or interior/exterior photos with, or without people.  And we will apply the same attention to detail to staging and lighting for still photos that we do for 360° photos.

Drone / Videography

Video has many uses in a virtual tour.  You can use it to add details to your story via testimonials or sports/performance highlights, add a virtual tour guide to help explain each location on campus, or create stand-alone aerial flyovers and video walk-throughs to post on video streaming services like YouTube or Vimeo. The Circlescapes team can:

  • Come to your location to shoot all the footage with standard cameras and/or drones
  • Edit the video to add additional content (titles, supporting text, testimonials, music, etc.)
  • Deliver a finished mp4 video for you to use as you wish.
  • Embed the video(s) in your virtual tour

As with all Circlescapes products, you own the content and can use it as you wish.

VR App Development

Virtual Reality (VR) is a great way make campus exploration even more immersive. We can build a custom VR app that your audience can download to their phones from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

When combined with a Google Cardboard headset, you can transport yourself virtually to your campus, with the ability to look all around to explore.

Google Cardboard headsets are inexpensive, and can be custom-printed with your logo to be used as trade show giveaways or direct response mailers.
