Summary of the technology

The virtual or interactive visit consists of recreating, by means of a computer, a real element such as a landscape, an urban environment, the interior of an establishment..., allowing the observer to move through said environment and obtain information on the different elements included. in it, such as historical data, characteristics of a product, name of a store and price of products.


Details of the Technology Offer

New and innovative aspects

Access to these visits is generally through the web, which allows universal access to the places visited and also makes it possible to make complementary information available to the visitor but integrated into the visit, such as audio, video and other resources.

Main advantages of its use

The main advantage we offer is the grouping of all phases of the activity, compared to the multiplicity of companies that are necessary in other cases: photography, design, IT... This represents a clear saving, both in time and money.
The fact of being able to count, in the same research group, with people from different fields of activity, provides added value to our offer since it enables the solution of problems that, otherwise, would make it necessary to resort to third parties or companies with the consequent increase in price and time invested.
Another advantage is the rapid incorporation into our work mechanisms of the results obtained in their investigations by the members of our group, which results in higher quality and better customer service.


Through photographic shots, through the software, virtual visits are generated. A series of initial corrections are applied to the images, after which they are processed by the corresponding software, which allows corrections in the projection and linking of the photos. After verifying the correct quality of the fusion of the final image, it is rendered and a new control phase is carried out to eliminate details that would have gone unnoticed in previous stages.
The final image, thus prepared, is adapted to the viewer used by the client, generally of the Flash type due to its universality and its independence of platforms and versions.
This adaptation includes references added to the photo as well as hyperlinks that allow jumping from one point to another in the panorama or providing additional documentary or multimedia information.
Currently, and in the process of development, we are adding the possibility of making the connection between images and databases to provide added value to virtual visits.


The main utility of virtual and/or interactive guides lies in making available to a practically universal public those visual elements specific to each business that want to be disseminated and are interested in making their territory or facilities known interactively so as to the user. Being able to control the quantity and quality of the information that complements the visual information is very important.
The companies and organizations to whom these guides are addressed are very varied, ranging from small companies, which through their implementation on the Internet want to make themselves known physically, to large companies or organizations that want to inform the public those parts of its facilities and work techniques that it deems appropriate.
Companies, particularly those dedicated to hospitality, home sales, recreational activities, residences, etc. are the recipients of virtual visits, especially if they are accompanied by the possibility of obtaining valuable data, be it multimedia, or
come from a database.
So are those public administrations such as town halls, county councils, museums, etc. who wish to publicize their heritage or their facilities in a virtual and attractive way to potential future visitors.
To do this, they have these technologies as a first-rate tool to make the object of their work known to the general public in detail.
