Cabarete360 Instructions

Viewing Panoramic Images

All the images you see on ActiveCabarete.com/360 or Cabarete360.com are interactive panoramas. This means that YOU control the image.

If you are new to viewing panoramas:

  • It is a steep learning curve but one you can master within minutes. To take full advantage of Cabarete360, please read completely through these short instructions.

To navigate a panorama:

  • You can use the controls that you see inside the image - those arrows and the plus and minus buttons. Click the arrows to move the image in some direction (pan). Click the plus or minus to zoom in or out.

  • Another way is to use your mouse. Click and drag your mouse in the image to move around - left or right, up or down. You can sometimes use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out.

  • A third way is to use the keyboard. Use the arrow keys to pan. Use the ctrl and shift keys (command and shift on a Mac) to zoom in and out.

  • And finally, you can move the radar in the map to pan.

Different projections:

  • If you right-click in an image, you can choose a different "projection". Since the image is spherical, there are different ways of representing this 3d surface on your 2d computer monitor - think of different types of world maps as an example.

Moving to another location:

  • The arrows you see are called HOTSPOTS. Click one of them to move to another panorama (spot).
  • Another way you canchange location is by clicking on a spot in the map.
  • Note that public spots are indicated in blue and private/commercial spots are in orange.
  • Also note that the further away the next spot is located the smaller the arrow and the higher up it appears in the panorama.
