ThingLink user: VRM Arena Tour - VRM is a regional media company that uses ThingLink in this article to give readers the experience of touring the Opel Arena in Germany. The tour begins with an aerial view outside of the stadium and readers can click on the various illustrations to explore points of interest. For example, clicking the field will take you to a 360° view from on the field, and clicking the shopping bag will take you to explore the stadium store. This use case highlights the ability to include regular flat images into your 360° tour. Including a regular image as your starting point gives the reader an easy to navigate table of contents that they can revisit at any point within the tour.
