Sydney University's Panoramic Video Tour
Quite a few universities now use 360 degree panoramic photographs to create a virtual tour of campus buildings and facilities. The Sydney University Tour is the first that I've seen which uses 360 degree panoramic videos. It's also the very first time that I've seen a 360 degree panoramic timelapse used on any website.
On this virtual tour you can watch and interact with a number of panoramic videos shot at various locations around the Sydney University campus. These include the library, from the top of the clocktower, inside a student accommodation room and in a lecture theatre.
The tour also includes a number of interactive 360 degree panoramic videos shot at some other locations around Sydney, including Sydney Harbour and Bondi Beach.
