Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has revealed the soon expected launching of Dubai360, a project unparalleled to anywhere in the world that is set to showcase full 360 degrees virtual tours of Dubai.

Debuting on the website is a 12 minute long, fully interactive 360 degree panoramic timelapse video showcasing the runway activities at Dubai International Airport - one of the world’s busiest international airports.

A 3 minute, 21 second non-interactive version of the video created from the panoramic source files, currently posted on YouTube depicts the entire scene as a “Little Planet” that slowly rotates to portray the passage of time through day and night. Viewers can control the direction and zoom of the camera as the timelapse plays, virtually exploring the airport in an unprecedented manner.

The video is just one piece of content from a broader, integrated tour that uses groundbreaking technology and is due for launch later this year.

Whilst the regular video is impressive enough, the interactive version unveiled on takes the experience into a whole new dimension, where people are able to immerse themselves in the timelapse, discover a wide range of features and take control of the camera movements. Currently, the website is only showcasing this airport timelapse video, and the full tour of Dubai will be featured later this year.

The footage was shot from just before sunset on April 14th through to the early hours of April 16th 2014. Taken from the top of the control tower situated between Terminals 1 and 3 at Dubai International Airport, the video provides a breathtaking panoramic view that reaches the skylines of Dubai and its neighbouring Emirate, Sharjah.

Featuring groundbreaking technology, the Dubai360 project will be the world’s largest and highest quality virtual city tour that exclusively uses fully interactive and immersive 360 degree panoramic photo, timelapse and video content. Anyone, anywhere in the world with access to an internet connection, will be able to explore Dubai at their leisure.
