In December 2017, Decathlon asked us to create a virtual tour for their first-ever Australian store, in Tempe NSW.
The virtual tour consists of >150 360° panoramas and includes all sporting areas and departments in-store – from Archery to Yoga.
Once the on-site photoshoot had concluded, the virtual tour was live on Google within 48 hours.
As the shop floor is vast, and home to such a wide range of products, an Enhanced tour was created which greatly improves the user experience and navigation. Today, you can find the tour embedded on their website.
The Decathlon virtual tour has accumulated over 1.84 million views on Google Maps – an average of ~12,105 views per week.
