Floor plans PRO
This tutorial will show you how to add a floor plan to your Virtual Tour and add overlay hotspots that link to the individual photos in the tour.
To add a floor plan to a tour, you can simply include it in the batch when you are creating a tour. Kuula will automatically recognize which images are flat and which are panoramic.
If you already have a tour and you wish to add floor plans to it, you can do it using the Upload > Single image function.
A floor plan can be created in a variety of ways. It can be a 3d rendering of the property, a map, a blueprint or CAD drawing or even a photo of a hand-drawn sketch made with your mobile phone. At the end of this article, you can find a list of recommended services and apps.
Adding hotspots to plans
Once the plan is uploaded and added to a tour, you can add labels & hotspots to your floor plan in the same way as you would add them to a 360° photo. Here's an example of a hotspot added over a regular image, a floor plan in this case:
