Interactive Panorama Lets Anyone See The View From The Top Of The Shard
The Guardian has launched an online app that lets visitors explore the view and learn about London's landmarks.
The Guardian has launched an interactive microsite to mark the opening of The Shard, offering those who can't get to London the chance to explore the view. ‘The View From the Top of the Shard' is a London panorama of sights and sounds, allowing online visitors to scroll around and zoom in and out of a 360° image taken from the observation platform of the EU's tallest building.
The site lets you switch between day and night panoramas, and you can put your headphones on to listen in on the city. The sounds, from the London Sound Survey, include birdsong, airplanes, and Big Ben.
