There are many applications for 3D tours.
In homes, the 3D tours allow prospective buyers to tour a home and determine if they want to take a personal tour. For sellers/home-owners, it provides a means for potential buyers and agents to preview the home in a non-intrusive manner. They can look from the comfort of their home without disrupting the day-to-day life of the home seller.
For other businesses, stores, galleries, etc., it allows the shoppers to patron the facility without actually coming in, and for those who are unable to commute, it provides a means for them to window-shop and potential internet sales, whereas they may not have made any purchase had they not been able to shop interactively. 3D tours build excitement and interest.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, it's purpose also means that folks are taking unnecessary risks by allowing people in their homes, especially for those who may have health issues and need to distance themselves and avoid unnecessary risk of potential exposure to illness.
