360 virtual tours
360 virtual tours, also known as Virtual Reality (VR) tours, are engaging and immersive experiences that allow online visitors to explore locations through digital 360-degree images. Viewers control the action as they explore the resort and its environment, including high-value amenities, such as bars, restaurants, conference rooms and spas. Hotspots within the photo-sphere images provide additional interactivity, allowing visitors to browse restaurant menus and spa treatments, as well as make room bookings.
Virtual tours have become an important element of promotion and marketing, allowing resorts to stay ahead of their competition. Reef Smart Guides is the only organization in the world to provide unique tri-level tours, which include ground-level, aerial and underwater domains. The underwater component integrates hotspots that transform the virtual tour into an educational experience, where visitors can learn about the coral reef ecosystem and its creatures.
3D models with augmented reality
Reef Smart Guides can create 3D models of any size, from individual dive boats to entire resorts and even individual dive and snorkel sites. Our 3D models allow visitors to explore resorts and their features from every conceivable angle.
They can be static or animated and are embedded into partner websites to provide a seamless experience that raises engagement and increases SEO. In addition, our 3D models are enabled with augmented reality (AR) so that online visitors can project them into their own environment, no matter where they are.
For each individual project, Reef Smart Guides ensures that all the images and videos captured by our professional photographers – whether on land, in the air, or below the surface of the water – are available to the client for marking purposes. This valuable portfolio is accessible for viewing and downloading through our online platform.
Reef Smarts Guides has Google Trusted Photographers on staff, who meet the strict quality requirements of the program and are certified to provide virtual visits on Google Street View. We also create eye candy videos that can be used on websites and social media to increase online exposure.
Reef Smart Guides can generate many non-digital assets from the digital data we collect. These assets can serve as cherished mementos for guests, as well as being invaluable as marketing tools and revenue streams for resorts.
These assets include handheld waterproof cards, wall charts, briefing charts, weatherproof shoreline signage and custom guides, which enhance the visitor experience, raise environmental awareness and improve in-water safety.
