Adding Floor Plans or Mini Maps to your Virtual Tours

Louise Jones

Your viewers won’t get lost with this brilliant new virtual tour feature!

Our latest ThingLink update enables you to add a floor plan or ‘mini map’ that shows the exact location of where you are on the 360-degree tour!

Virtual tours with embedded hotspots are increasingly popular, and uses soared during the pandemic in so many different ways. These highly interactive and accessible ways of showcasing a place, space or situation have continued to increase in popularity. 

We’ve seen a real surge in virtual tours created for real estate, interactive games by educators, holiday homes, virtual schools, transitions, campus tours and staff development, particularly essential training for onboarding new employees.

In fact, real estate professionals and potential buyers see virtual tours as an essential part of the purchase process now.  In learning and development training, virtual tours or interactive 360-degree images are seen as cost and time saving assets enabling organizations to be more efficient and effective.

Check out this brilliant virtual tour example featuring our new floor plan feature here, simply enter! What’s really nice about this is you can also click on the hotspots directly on the floor plan to transition to that scene / room.

Virtual tour quick and easy instructions!

Tour creation: To try this feature, you can create your own floor plan as a base image for a scene and add your 360 media scenes using the Tour Tag. Then simply add your floor plan scene ID in the settings panel. Read more in our brilliant walkthrough support article
