Have to figure that one out impi
The actual virtual tour is completed and works really well. It consists of a 360 Degree pan from various points ( 16 points actually) around and on top of the battlefield. During the pan its possible to click on noted areas to see what happened in that area and also to change the angles of the scan. Its pretty comprehensive. The problem is being very interactive its also really big so its going to give Pete some nightmares in working out how to fit it onto the forum.
There are two tours, one at iSandlwana and the other of RD.
Im posting of the disks to Pete today, give him something to stop him getting bored for a few days.  Very Happy 

So hopefully he can figure it out, but if there are any wiz kids out there that could assist Im sure Pete would value any advice.

Cheers

Oh no!  Shocked springy mate, why Windows 8 ????  scratch 

Windows 8 is the biggest load of crap since vista (and even that is better than win 8), surely win 7 would be better, it's even become more popular than xp was. I thought win xp was the best until win 7 came along, it's become the most used windows since xp, and many users who changed to win 8 have gone back to win 7.

C'mon springy mate, think again, make it work on windows 7.  Very Happy

Sorry Martin the development partners are Microsoft (The app is really a tiny part of the partnership) and they provide the platform.

Oh heck  Shocked 

So does that mean that anyone who hasn't got win 8 can't use the app, or will it be able to run on any other windows as well as win 8? If not, then that's a real shame, 'cos win 8 is not very popular.

Can you not try impi's suggestion and upload it to You Tube?

I hope Pete can come up with something.

Will you be watching the IPL pyjama game Frank mate? I believe that a couple of the teams have been banned from playing this year, something about corrupting the game.

Cheers mate.  Salute

Hi Martin
We are chatting to Microsoft all the time about various applications etc so I will see what comes up. Just to differentiate though, the Virtual Tour that impi is talking about is just that a panoramic interactive video. Because its inter active, ie you can change viewpoints call up information etc it cant go onto a normal video platform. That's the one that Petes having to work out.
The app is a separate issue, that's presently apple based but will be adapted because of the new partnership to windows.
In addition we are also working on an interactive animated fly over.
So yes a lot in the pipeline. Ive been wanting to do this type of thing for years but never had the time available, or the knowledge quite frankly but since Ive retired (semi) and made contact with the Conservation Trust and been given a free hand with my sons IT company things are coming together.
Wont be watching the IPL, to much like Kiddie Zuluwar Im afraid Im an old fashioned 5 day man. Nothing quite like sitting in the stands, spot of lunch and a couple of beers then nodding of in the sun..............  Very Happy 

Cheers

Hi springy.

Thanks for the onfo mate, I hope that you can work something out.

Yes, I also prefer the test matches, and I think that T20 has a lot to answer for with the performences of some of the players, the way they swish and swipe and play some silly shots during test matches, they must think they are playing T20. The interesting thing about the IPL is that you get to watch all the other nations stars, people like Chris Gayle (Henry), AB De Villiers, Virat Kohli, etc, etc, etc, so it can get a little addictive watching them smash the ball to all parts of the park. If you keep nodding off in the sun you will miss all the play, now do come along that man Very Happy

This is a quick overview of Springboks virtual tour of Rorke's Drift. Not the best, but I will give in another go in a better setting than a kitchen. Hopefully it will give you a better understanding of its purpose. Isandlwana yet to be done.

Excellent, 360 of Rorkes Drift. I bet that took sometime to upload to YouTube. Well done Springbok, !

The image of the church, alongside the entrance, is that a grave / Memorial ?

So I'm guessing when the project is finished, it will look something like this tour!

Hi Littlehand

What a coincidence. I havn't been to Isandlwana, but I have driven down that road in your link, past Manzanar!

Its just across Death Valley in California - very apt.

Hi Littlehand
The first two posts were of the African Conservation trust, the same organisation that's produced the main tour.
The actual tours themselves are exactly the same as the last one you posted, unfirtunatly pete cant post it in that format.

The arrows you see are point of view arrows. On the original if you click on those arrows you change your view point.
John
yes that's the visitors car park.

Cheers
