Patarei sea fortress/prison, Tallinn

Post by lveerde » Sat Sep 16, 2017 9:56 pm

The new virtual tour comes from the fortress of Patarei, Tallinn.

http://www.tuur.ee/tuurid/09-patarei/pa ... rtuaaltuur

The beautiful triangular fortress of Patarei was built for Nicholas I in the early nineteenth century and used in the twentieth as a Soviet prison. The former prison has been left exactly as it was when it was closed in the early 2000s, right down to used cotton swabs in the operating room. The cells still contain the books and magazines the prisoners were reading.

From October 2016, Patarei Sea Fortress-Prison is permanently closed. Before the closure, we made this virtual tour to preserve a little bit of the unique feel and look.

From technical point of view, the challenging part of tyhis virtual tour for me were the polygon hotspots. They work differently on desktop and on mobile. I set up the system so that i was able to dray multiple polygons and make them act as one if on-hover. You can see this for example in the medical block panorama:

- on hover the lamp on the ceiling and you see the equipment on the floor gets highlighted too.

The texts were written by the historian of architecture Robert Treufeldt. Texts are profound and interesting - hope to get this translated some day. Right now the tour is in some strange language. Sorry about that :)

Extremely interesting. Great imaging too. Thank you.
Hope to read the English translated version some day.

Thank you. I use Sony A7r + Canon 8-15mm @ 15mm. 3 exposure brackets. But I really think same result can be done with no matter what dslr/mirrorless + 15mm lens combination :)

Agree.

We use a Canon 5d and Sigma 8mm full circle Fisheye with 4 images around the horizon. We shoot RAW and small .jpg series.

Excellent tour !

Also very interesting history, so if you find the time for a multilanguage version (also english), I guess it will be a great success and I am shure it will be shared often in the web :-)

Thank you :)
English version creation depends on the client. If it were only me, then it would never come because i never have the time ;)

Ahhh but then there is always using Google Translate ?

Then the English translation results might create an issue ?
i.e. the English results might convey the correct meaning.
