Masjid al-Haram View - 3D Virtual Tour
Masjid al-Haram View virtual tour can be started by clicking the preview window or by downloading the stand-alone version. 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 Masjid al-Haram View, 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 Masjid al-Haram View were done in the year 2007. Shooting equipment was Nikon D80 digital camera, 10.5 mm fisheye lens, remote control, panoramic tripod head and a tripod. For Masjid al-Haram View 24+ 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.
