360imagery Preferred Supplier of Virtual Tours to the Welsh Government
360imagery Virtual Tour of Life Sciences Hub in Cardiff for the Welsh Government

Looking back to 2014, it was a very busy year for 360imagery working with new clients.

Amongst some of the 'bigger' names, we won the tender to create tours for the Mayor of London/Greater London Authority - to catch up on this check out the Blog by clicking here. Then in June, we were really proud to win the competitive tender process to become the preferred supplier of 360 virtual tours to the Welsh Government. We really pride ourselves on the quality of our work, all of our tours being bespoke designed and fully undertaken in-house. It's fantastic that clients recognise not only this, but also the affordability and cost-effectiveness of a 360imagery Virtual Tour. To see more of the clients we've been working with recently, check out the Client Page of our website.

The first project we undertook for the Welsh Government was to create one of our stunning Virtual Tours of the new Life Sciences Hub in Cardiff, on behalf of the Business Wales team. To read more about the role and work carried out from this amazing building, and to see our tour in action on their website, click here.

As with the majority of our work, we begin this tour with two external mast scenes taken from 8 metres high, using a specialist technique developed in-house. We find this gives a real 'WOW' factor to the opening scene as it lifts the viewers eye to above any street furniture or vehicles. It shows the building off from a great impact angle.

Using High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography techniques, with the latest Canon camera equipment, we ensure that the lightest and darkest areas of the image are evened out so you will never see 'blown out' or glaring bright windows, or loss of detail.

This was a fairly large tour comprising 16 scenes, navigated as a 'walk-through' experience with the aid of navigational arrows, thumbnails and an interactive floor plan. As with all of our work, we bespoke design the Graphic User Interface to blend perfectly in to the existing website of the client. In this case we had to create 2 versions - one in English, the other in Welsh! 

360imagery are one of the leading virtual tour companies in the UK, with bespoke work our speciality. We'd love to hear from you and chat about thoughts you may have for your own project. Just give us a call on 0845 8726442 or visit us at
