The Johannesburg International Motor Show was a biennial Motor Show held every October in Johannesburg South Africa at the NASREC Johannesburg Expo Center. The Johannesburg International Motor Show was the biggest Auto Show in South Africa and attracted +/- 250,000 people to the show when it is was running.
Today the show is no more, and have been replaced by the Festival of Speed which are now held at the Kyalami Racing track.

For historical purposes this is the original virtual tour that we created in 2011. Today 7 years later our Virtual Reality technology is much more advanced. Have a look at the “Ancient Emperor Guesthouse Virtual Tour” to see just how much we have advanced in the last couple of years!
PANORAMA IMAGES FROM THE VIRTUAL TOUR
Traditionally Virtual Tours were created by taking panorama images of the environment. The old-way of creating panorama images were to take a camera and place it on a tripod. The photographer would then turn the camera in 360 Degrees on the tripot taking a photo +/- every 10 degrees depending on the lens type being used on the camera. Afterwards the photographer would then “Tape” these photos together, or in more modern times use stitching software to digitally combine these photographs to create a panorama image.
This is how we shot the Virtual Tour originally
For every panorama we took we had to take +/- 7 photographs at every 51 degrees. You can just imagine how many photographs we had to take to create the virtual tour there is more than 100 panoramas in the virtual tour we created.
