Highlighting the cultural heritage of Vlaams-Brabant, using virtual reality

The province of Vlaams-Brabant is home to a large number of well-known heritage sites and a few hidden gems. To emphasize the diversity of its attractions and showcase them to potential visitors and stay-at-home tourists, the provincial authorities went looking for an innovative approach that would reach the widest possible audience. The solution? A virtual environment with 360-degree images of the main sights in the region – all accessible from the comfort of one’s own home.

Building a budget-friendly showcase platform

The local government chose Poppr to implement a virtual tour of its most interesting heritage sites. A particular request was the implementation of available images that had been taken for an earlier, EU-funded project on cycling routes. This way, additional spending of public funds would be kept to a minimum.

Cost-efficient and ready-to-go

Using the available footage and additional 360-degree images, Poppr built and designed the Virtueel Vlaams-Brabant environment, accessible on any device. Locations that are otherwise inaccessible to the general public – whether because of safety precautions, limited opening hours or for any other reason – can now be visited 24/7 in all their glory.

Key results

  • 15 accessible locations.
  • Available on any device, from anywhere.
