1. (WO2019060985) A CLOUD-BASED SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CREATING A VIRTUAL TOUR
Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. A Cloud-based method of creating a virtual tour, comprising:

allowing a user to upload images for stitching of a 360 panorama image; creating a virtual tour based on the 360 panorama image; and

allowing the user to edit the virtual tour by embedding an object for the user to interact with, when the virtual tour is viewed with a Virtual Reality (VR) headset.

2. The Cloud-based method according to claim 1, wherein allowing the user to upload images for stitching of the 360 panorama image comprises:

allowing the user to upload a plurality of images to the cloud;

prompting a first identification of an image of the sky from the plurality of images;

prompting a second identification of an image of the ground from the plurality of images;

stitching the plurality of images into a 360 panorama image, based on the first and second identifications; and

rendering the 360 panorama image into a VR environment view.

3. The Cloud-based method according to claim 2, wherein prompting the second identification of the image of the ground from the plurality of images comprises:

prompting an identification of two images of the ground; and prompting an identification of an orientation of each of the two ground images.

4. The Cloud-based method according to claim 1, wherein the object is a 3D object.

5. The Cloud-based method according to claim 4, wherein the 3D object is in a form of a GL Transmission Format (glTF) file.

The Cloud-based method according to claim 4, wherein the 3D object is a 3D text.

The Cloud-based method according to claim 1, wherein the virtual tour is built on an A-frame.io framework.

The Cloud-based method according to claim 7, wherein the object is a 3D object and the 3D object is embedded into the virtual tour as part of an A-frame layer.

The Cloud-based method according to claim 1, wherein stitching the plurality of images into a 360 panorama image is performed using Hugins.

The Cloud-based method according to claim 1, further comprising displaying the virtual tour in a web browser.

The Cloud-based method according to claim 1, wherein the embedded object is interactive based on controls associated with the VR headset when the virtual tour is viewed with the VR headset.

The Cloud-based method according to claim 9, wherein stitching the plurality of images into a 360 panorama image is based on a queuing system that transforms the stitching as a parallel processing.

A non-transitory computer readable memory recorded thereon computer executable instructions that when executed by a processor perform a Cloud-based method of creating a virtual tour, comprising:

allowing a user to upload images for stitching of a 360 panorama image; creating a virtual tour based on the 360 panorama image; and allowing the user to edit the virtual tour by embedding an object for the user to interact with, when the virtual tour is viewed with a Virtual Reality (VR) headset.
