Aphrodisias - 3D Virtual Tour
Aphrodisias virtual tours can be started by clicking the preview window or by downloading the stand-alone versions. Just drag the mouse to the direction you want to look. Use the scroll wheel to zoom at the details. Press F9 to get a list of the 3D sites you downloaded (residing in the same directory). To install the listed sites as a screensaver press F5. Our advise is to install all the sites, including Aphrodisias, as a screensaver. When the screensaver starts, a random site is chosen and shown around automatically (this gives the impression of looking at a documentary in HD quality). To see the usage of other keys press F1. Press Ecs to exit.
Panorama shootings for Aphrodisias were done in the year 2012. Shooting equipment was Nikon D7000 digital camera, 10.5 mm fisheye lens, panoramic tripod head and a tripod. For Aphrodisias 240+ pictures were taken. The pictures that are taken for different angles are later combined using a computer to form a full 360 degree panoramic view, surrounding the viewer both horizontally and vertically.
This project was done in collaboration with The Governorship of Aydin and Provincial Directorate of Culture and Tourism of Aydin.
