Clean Up[edit]

I propose that this article needs cleaning up. The article is very much acting as a web directory in some parts, which Wikipedia is not. Also the structure of the article wrt. headings is bad. -Andrewduffell 18:59, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Extrenal links[edit]

There is way too many external links. Anyone have any suggestions of what should stay, and what should go? -Andrewduffell 19:11, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Proposed merging[edit]

This article covers more technical virtual reality methods. Virtual tourism focuses on integrating these methods into innovative applications of distributed visual learning expereinces that help support sustainable economic development business models. I'd advocate NOT merging articles since they seem to address different audiences. 12:22, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
merge - The subject matter is not sufficiently distinct to warrant separate articles. Torc2 09:27, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
merge - I agree that the subject matter is too similar to warrant a new article. Jason Quinn (talk) 19:52, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
merge - Could be made into a legitimate article, but has no dedicated contributors likely to do it Adam McCormick (talk) 01:07, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

First use?[edit]

{{fact}} added. I don't doubt the technical details, but do we have a third-party published reference (i.e. not on Colin Johnson's website) to this being the first ever Virtual Tour system? Tearlach 12:02, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Added a citation as suggested; with link to the Center of the Study of Architecture (CSA) newsletter archives which goes back to 1995. There's also reference to a British Museum publication within the 'First use' section which maybe could be used as a separate reference.Azureskies 21:32, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I feel that this page could do with a rewrite and a more concise introduction. There also currently exists two pages on the same subject; different only in the plural of the title - 'Virtual tour' and this page 'Virtual tours'. I feel that these pages should be merged if that is possible Azureskies 20:20, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Advetisement or encyclopedia?[edit]

I feel this article reads more like an advertisement for than a factual encyclopediic article.

I've merged in from Virtual tours and done some reworking and trimming. Let me know if there are any issues. Adam McCormick (talk) 02:48, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
