Stimulant collaborated with photography studio Panogs to design a 360° zoomable gigapixel panorama with over 100 points of interest. Deployed on six touchscreen PCs, each device’s view was hand-calibrated to what could be seen from the nearby windows. The system supported five different languages, day and night panoramas, and more. The goal was to design and develop an interactive experience meant to engage and excite visitors about the history and culture of Philadelphia.

Process

The interface was able to switch from day mode to night mode which required the large gigapixel image and UI to load. To distract the visitor during that time, I designed a loading transition that featured a playful animation to help communicate what was happening. Here are a couple of variations for that animation.


Localization

The view from the top was a world wide destination. We designed the interface so that visitors could select their language of origin and enjoy all the same functionality as native English speakers.
