ThingLink Spotlight: Interactive Map using Tour Creator from FashionUnited

ThingLink user:  FashionUnited (click to explore live page) – Virtual tours are most commonly associated with 360/VR images, videos or still images of a physical space.   FashionUnited shows how ThingLink’s tour creator layout expands this notion by combining any image into one unified experience.  Their editorial team published an interactive map featuring highlights from the biggest European fashion trade shows in 2020.  Clicking on the various icons will give viewers a deeper dive into each specific region.  Click on London to explore an interactive image featuring London shows.  Click back on the top left corner to revisit the original map and continue exploring the remaining regions.  Viewers can seamlessly navigate between interactive images of Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid and more directly from the single map view of Europe.  You can use the tour creator layout to create image carousels, presentations and deep dive maps, infographics or learning exercises.  The possibilities are endless!
