The Architect of The Capitol
Create an extensive set of virtual tours to span all the Capitol complex, support building, and grounds.
To provide a level of education detail that shows off the historical heritage of this true national treasure.
The Architect of the Capitol (AOC) asked Virtually Anywhere to create a capitol tour, a complete virtual tour of The United States Capitol Building and all other buildings and areas around the Capitol that the AOC controls (see below for a more complete list), as well as the many facets of the Capitol Grounds.
This virtual capital tour allow people from all over to tour these significant and historic buildings online. Extensive embedded hotspots within the capital tour provide links to existing photos, deepening the historic experience to include the important paintings, sculptures, monuments, and architectural design elements all throughout the Capitol complex. Virtually Anywhere captured 360 degree photography in spectacular areas such as the Capitol Rotunda, National Statuary Hall, Library of Congress, many important Congressional caucus rooms, and so much more.
One of our greatest challenges with this capitol tour was keeping up with the vast amount of historical data included in each view. This historical depth affected not only captions for each area, but also intricate use of hotspots allowing viewers to click on artworks to find their origins, authors, and brief historical significances all through the tours. The resulting virtual capitol tour shows all people across the globe the majesty of these spaces, and also help in the preservation of that unique history.
