Historic First 360° Panorama Photos Taken of Fujairah

The first panorama photos have been created and posted of Fujairah city.

The Hungarian brothers who operate the 360emirates Virtual Tours, Frigyes Toth (manager) and Zsolt Toth (photographer), have been to Fujairah several times in the last few weeks to let businesses know of this resource and to start taking panoramas in the emirate of Fujairah.

360° Fujairah
From this main web link put ‘Fujairah’ into the SEARCH box to locate the growing number of Fujairah panoramas. Click on one of the Fujairah panorama virtual tours and see how the screen flies from the Burj Khalifa to Fujairah.

The first panorama posted on the Al Hajar Mountains at Masafi on 20 September had received 887 views by the 29th of the month.

The second panorama posted on the 24 September of the Incense Burner Roundabout had received 393 views at the time of writing.

The third panorama posted later on the 24 September of the Coffeepot Roundabout by 29 September had been viewed 369 times.

Fujairah History
On 28 September, the largest panorama of the city of Fujairah was posted and in a few hours had been seen more than a 100 times.

This has been taken by a camera with a capacity of a massive 1.33 Gigapixels which gives the panoramic photos clarity and great detail.

When viewers click on the Auto-Rotate button they get to see all around Fujairah and they can zoom in with a mouse click.

The city of Fujairah is ideal for taking these panoramas because it is encircled by the Hajar Mountains which provide ideal vantage points.

Next Steps
After several of these wide city shots are taken and stitched together, businesses, hotels, Colleges, schools and shopping malls can elect to have a red locator put on a Fujairah panorama to let the world know where they are.

The red dot comes with a panoramic photo either outside or inside your place or both and information details of your company can be placed so viewers know how they can get to you, aided by the associated SHOW MAP function.

Businesses can also elect to have a Virtual Tour to give viewers and prospective customers a look at the many facilities and products they have to offer.
