The Sri Andal Temple - History and Legend
At MSR India, we have been looking at how one can convey far richer information by combining multiple visualization technologies into a single, holistic, interactive experience, with added support for annotations and narratives.
We have built a prototype virtual tour of the Sri Andal Temple that, for the first time, integrates technologies such as Photosynth and HDView, opening up new ways to interactively explore visually complex sites. These technologies are combined with audio, video and guided walkthroughs, to provide a compelling end user experience.
The accompanying video highlights the key scenarios of our interactive prototype which was created using WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation).
