See city of Birmingham through 3D virtual tour

Ever wonder what Birmingham looks like from the sky? The city of Birmingham is offering a birds-eye view with the launch of a new 3D virtual tour.

Through the use of stunning 360-degree aerial and ground-level imagery, this fully immersive experience virtually transports viewers from anywhere in the world to Birmingham. It can be used as an interactive tour to serve as a residential and commercial attraction tool and resource to travelers, visitors and those interested in hosting a special event in the city. New residents, as well as those already familiar with the city may discover something new as they explore the detailed tour featuring the city's golf courses, parks, and facilities including The Birmingham Museum, Birmingham Fire Department, Birmingham Ice Sports Arena and lots more.

The city of Birmingham is one of the first local communities to offer this virtual tour. It is easily accessible and can be shared via website, social media and email. The tour will be expanded in the future and can be continuously updated with new images, video clips, documentation, featured locations and more.

Birmingham partnered with Skyway Interactive to create the tour, which includes nearly 200 aerial drone photographs, 360-degree images and graphics. Skyway Interactive has an impressive list of clients including universities and professional sports venues, among others.

"This virtual tour really showcases our beautiful and vibrant city," said Birmingham Communications Director Marianne Gamboa. "This resource is part of ongoing efforts to offer a variety of accessible, user-friendly communication tools across a wide range of channels that promote city of Birmingham services and features to residents and the greater community.”

The interactive virtual tour can be accessed on the city of Birmingham’s website at
