360 degree photo spheres used to capture information for healthcare facility

The new Hennepin County Medical Center Specialty Center in Minneapolis is using panoramic photos to maintain building, according to an article on the Medical Construction & Design website.

In each room, 360 degree photo spheres used to capture information on what systems were built into the walls and above the ceilings.

The photo is then filed in the project records by the room number, making it easy to find later. 

Previously, mechanical, electrical and plumbing system documentation has been recorded with individual photos. Adequately capturing a standard room required 6-10 photos.
