Take a virtual walk through charity's amazing home & Tring Rugby Club

A Tring based company has just released virtual tours of Tring Rugby Club and the Chiltern MS centre in Wendover.

Venue View used imported technology from America called Matterport to create 3D models of the buildings that you can virtually walk around.

The tours consist of up to 200 images which are stitched together by specialist software to allow the user to walk through the building virtually, as well as look around. The camera that takes the images also has an infrared sensor which allows a 3D model of the building to be created.

When deciding initially what buildings to map out, the company sought the opinions of locals from the Facebook group 'Everything Tring'.

Technical Director at Venue View Keith McMahon said:

"There were a number of very deserving charities mentioned.

"But we choose the two charities based on the number of likes or mentions it had on the post. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to give something back to the local community".

"Providing a virtual tour to the Chilterns MS Centre and Tring Rugby Club enables them to become really tech-forward, showcasing and promoting their facilities in a fully immersive and interactive way" Keith continues.

"In the case of Tring Rugby Club their virtual tour will enable them to attract more players, supporters, sponsors, and really boost the hiring of their social facilities. For the Chilterns MS Centre the virtual tour acts as a wonderful reassurance to new visitors who perhaps need the security of what will await them at the centre. They also have a meeting space for hire as well as a great hydrotherapy pool and the tour does a fantastic job of showing these off".
