Mapwing is a software technology for building, sharing, and exploring
virtual reality (VR) tours. It enables anyone with a digital camera and a
computer to create tours quickly and easily. Users can create VR locations

detail image hotspots. Mapwing tours can be viewed in web pages using
Adobe’s Flash Player or explored with OpenGL using Mapwing Viewer.

contain up to 20 points and have a map background resolution of 1024 by
