Geography fs360 Full Screen 360’s give you the experience of standing in a space and looking in all directions 360 degrees. Two types of 360’s are common; cylindrical and cubic. Cubic 360’s give you the ability to look up and down as well. Object 360’s allow you the ability to rotate an object, product, or anything that can be photographed 360 degrees.

Geography History Pan

My intention with this site is to make immersive panoramic images also called VR Photography more known among the general public.

Interactive panoramas is a young media and as such it has for many years been known among entusiastic photographers and multimedia creators. An interactive VR panorama can not be seen in a book or on a printed image. If you print the panorama it gets a completely different expression.

Geography Music BBC bbcws

Listen to sounds and audio from around the world. As part of the BBC World Service, this unique map allows users to upload sounds and audio from all over the globe. Could be useful for providing an alternative to text and images. Useful as a whole class resource via an IWB, and could also be useful to students creating project work based on other parts of the world, by adding links to sounds and audio made in the region they are studying about:

Today, many organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to manage the sheer volume of data relating to their business. Although more data is invariably better, this is only true if the data can be processed into useable information, delivered to the correct audience in the correct format and allow for the right decisions to be taken at the right time.
