The spherical panoramas (360°x180°) can be viewed in all directions, even up and down.
The panorama downloads in tiles. Sometimes you see a blurry preview first and sometimes just a black grid.
You can start viewing and panning it as soon as you see the first parts.
Use the fullscreen option for the best viewing experience. You can do it by pressing from the navigation buttons or by right clicking in the panorama and select "fullscreen" from the menu.

Some of the Gallery sections have a button under the gallery image. In those cases the gallery can be opened both as an image gallery (like all the other galleries) and as a virtual tour. The gallery image opens the gallery as a gallery and the "VIRTUAL TOUR" button opens the gallery as a Virtual Tour.
The virtual tours open only one window in which all the panoramas of that gallery can be seen. The panoramas of the virtual tour are either connected by hotspots, lists, or a map. If the they are connected by a map you will see a map of the panorama location on top of the panorama. Clicking any non-spot place on the map minimizes the map to a small icon at the top right corner of the window. Clicking on the map icon opens the map again. All the panoramas in that gallery are marked as red spots on the map. Clicking the red spot will open the panorama taken at that exact position.
In the Map View you can see the positions of all panoramas on a map (from Google maps). The exact position of each panorama is marked on the map. By clicking on each marker you can see the title of the panorama and a small view of the panorama. By clicking the link "Show Panorama" under the image you can open the panorama in full screen in a new window.
You can zoom in/out the map and navigate in the map in different directions by the controls on the top left corner of the map.
