VR panoramas, sometimes called Immersive Photography, can be defined as 360º panoramic imagery displayed in a viewer, allowing you to interactively pan around, looking in different directions. Think of Google Streetview and imagine you're inside a sphere looking outward a full 180º x 360º with zoom in/out capabilities from an aerial platform designed by SkyPan.

Dusk 360s were invented by SkyPan in 2012. Thanks to technical achievements in optics, sensors & stabilizers we are able to produce "Hero" panoramics at dusk using our specially built robots. We define dusk as the 4 minute time window when ambient sky light matches the exposure of interior building lights - occurring 20 minutes after sunset. Please read the FAQ section to understand limitations of dusk.

Gigapan refers to the technology of layering rows and columns of Raw digital media in order to offer high-resolution gigapixel media within one seamless panoramic photograph. Exploring & viewing gigapans includes extreme detail and the ability to print oversize murals up to 50' long or more.
Cylindrical Panoramics represent original SkyPan film projects that cover complete 360º views using aerial mount systems built by SkyPan for use from cranes, robots, manned helicopters and fixed buildings. As flattened 2D files you'll find the same compass direction repeated at both ends with descriptions per specific development needs like site positioning.
Hard Rock Hotel Chicago
This twilight panoramic view was shot from what was formerly the Carbon & Carbide Building on Chicago's Magnificent Mile. It's unique in that it includes most of downtown Chicago looking out from inside the city showing two major Chicago landmarks: the Sears Tower on the left (S) and the John Hancock Building on the right (N). Height= 38th floor
This property, located along the Chicago River, posed a very difficult shoot situation: The site was situated extremely close to neighboring buildings–in an area where a full-sized helicopter could not possibly fly. In order to achieve the client's precise shoot heights, we had to take off and land the RPV from the rooftops of nearby buildings. We succeeded in achieving one of our most precise flight patterns. Shoot Height was from approximately the 40th floor.
Overlooking the well-known Century City office towers and the Los Angeles Country Club, this image was shot from above the last remaining undeveloped land in the center of Century City, LA. The client needed to choose among two–out of a potential four–proposed sites that we shot. Based on our footage, they were able to see which sites provided the most dramatic views and thus proceed with their project. Shot from a height of approx. 40 storys
600 Lake Shore Drive
This image was shot from above one of the last remaining undeveloped properties on Lake Shore Drive in downtown Chicago. Knowing the emotional impact of an early morning shoot, SkyPan created this image which shows a commanding a view of Lake Michigan, the beach, and its surrounding towers. Shot from a height of approx. 30 storys
Located in the super-hot, Miami tower development district, this assignment was another case where the time-of-day for the shoot was critical to the stunning end result. By using cloud cover to mask sun flares in combination with our precision positioning GPS system we achieved a graphically compelling shot, rich with neighborhood reference points. This was an essential marketing component, as the target market for this project wanted to see clearly where this property was relative to the homes of their friends and families. Shot from a height of approx. 45 storys.
This downtown Denver skyline represents the panoramic view from the proposed Four Season's residences at the 33rd floor level. The view of the foothills to the right highlights the close proximity of the Rocky Mountains to downtown Denver. With a location along the popular 14th Street Arts District and Restaurant Row this view visually describes the advantages of living just outside the central core of Denver.
Park View, Chicago
This image represents the proposed ParkView tower view in the vibrant River East district of Chicago. Produced from the roof of an existing high rise, only 150 feet from the site, Lake Michigan and the entire downtown skyline are visible from the penthouse level in this twinkling 360. Magic hour, the term used to describe the twilight moment where sky and building exposures overlap, is one of SkyPan's specialties. 47-story 360 degree view
Trump Tower, Tampa
Set along the Hillsborough River in the red-hot Tampa market, this view mimics what one would see from the 40th floor of their Trump luxury condo. Trump can afford to hire anyone... they chose SkyPan.
These straight up videos were commissioned by Skydeck at the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) to represent dramatic comparisons matching the observation height of the 1400' tower over different Chicago locations. Utilizing SkyPan technologies matched with proGoogleEarth imagery we produced 6 aerial "vertical" videos beginning at 5' and zooming up to 103 floors.
