About This Project
Qatar Rail Metro Stations
Qatar Rail commissioned Doha Pano to develop a VR experience for the Doha Metro before the launch of the service to introduce this national landmark project to the public and to the world. The scope of the VR included developing a Train journey and a 360 virtual tour in the stations including Msheireb’s Metro Station. The 360 Virtual Reality technology used a software that included voiceover integration replicating the metro journey.
At a later stage Qatar Rail has asked Doha Pano to further develop the project after the launch of Doha Metro service. The upgraded 360 VR tour of the Doha Metro covered customer information using text integration with the highest resolution quality capturing the journey and transforming it into an experience giving the user the feeling as if they were there.
The information was integrated in the tour using both text and icons covering customer journey key points.
The VR is currently used by the client to raise awareness on the project and also played an instrumental role in Qatar Rail school awareness program. The technology helped in promoting the project to local and international audiences where the client used the 360 VR technologies in exhibitions including INoTrans, Hannover international exhibition, Cityscape, QITCOM and Silk Road.
Qatar Rail also assigned Doha Pano on a third project to develop 360 Google Street View tours of 8 of its key stations on the Red Line and were uploaded on Google for the public
The tours were displayed in exhibitions and currently these stations 360 Virtual Tours are published on Google generating hundreds of thousands of views to the general public locally and internationally
All tours are easily updated and modified in a short time.
