Greyhound Pub, Friar Gate - A 360x180 degree VR photograph outside.

Following on from yesterdays post on the Greyhound pub reopening I thought I would make a 360x180 degree virtual Reality photograph so you can see what it looks like and its position on Friar Gate.

I have created an interactive 360 degree high resolution photograph in front of this pub so you can see exactly where it is located on Friargate and what it looks like, click the link and then use the mouse to look around and zoom in :
360 view of The Greyhound Pub, Friargate. <-- Click link for a great 360 view of The Greyhound pub.
It is like google streetview image, its an interactive 360 degree photograph that you control using the mouse.
To move the view around simply click with the mouse and drag the viewpoint to where you want to look. You can look in all directions including up and down. As well as the mouse, you can use the control buttons at the bottom of the viewer or even the keyboard cursor keys and +/- keys to zoom in/out.
Here is my VR photograph of the Greyhound Pub, Derby :
Download Adobe Flash to display this panorama.

I photographed this at 06:52 on 21st May 2010, the day after it reopened.

If you like this VR photograph then you might like to view my High Resolution FullScreen version of it by clicking this link here (need broadband and fast pc) :
High Res/fullscreen VR photograph of Greyhound Pub.
This one has a button at the bottom that toggles the viewer so it fills the entire screen (same as youtube videos do, Hit esc to exit fullscreen mode or click the fullscreen button)

I hope you like it.
