Virtual tour experience launched for Munich Airport

Flughafen München, the operator of Munich Airport in Germany, has launched what it claims is the world’s first virtual tour of an airport.

A crew from Munich-based technology developer NavVis spent months photographing every area of the airport using 360º camera technology. In total, more than a million panoramic photos were processed to produce the digital map material. The result is an immersive digital walkthrough of the airport’s Munich Airport Center (MAC), the two terminals, and the new Terminal 2 satellite facility.

The application offers plenty of useful functionality, with more than 1,000 points of interest embedded on the maps including shops, bars, restaurants, passenger amenities and departure gates. The airport believes that it presents passengers with a useful tool to become familiar with the airport before leaving home.

To embark on the digital tour, users simply click on the area they wish to visit in the opening map before selecting their desired direction. Holding the left mouse button permits rotation to the left or right or up and down. Digital agency Baro & Pfannenstein developed the control concept and user-interface.
