Viewing lanarkshire360 Interactive Panoramic Media

All existing image galleries and 360 Degree Panoramic images are in the process of being upgraded from their original Java based format to a more accessible Flash or HTML5 based format.

This was necessary due to the new security restrictions that have been placed on Java based content by all of the current web browsers meaning that casual internet surfers cannot view the content without having a good working knowledge of how to disable the appropriate restrictions within their browsers.

For the near future all lanarkshire360 content will now be presented in a Flash based format that will automatically "fallback" to HTML5 format when the users browser cannot handle Flash based content. Although HTML5 would appear to be the way that the main volume of internet media will eventually be served, at the moment very few web browsers apart from Firefox, are totally HTML5 compatible. We recommend the Firefox browser as being the best able to handle modern content at the moment.

Most of the modern web browsers should be able to at least handle Flash based content and you should see the control buttons along the bottom centre of the image window. If your browser is not fully Flash compatible then you may not see the "Fullscreen" button at the bottom right-hand side of the image, though the image should still display and rotate as necessary. If you cannot see anything except a black image window then your first step should be to ensure that you have a suitable Flash browser plugin installed.

Currently very few "mobile" devices are completely compatible with either Flash or HTML5 so it will depend on your specific device whether the full range of features are available when viewing any of the interactive 360 degree content. i.e. Some mobile devices will display the control buttons and allow the fullscreen facility while others will only allow viewing within the original "window".
