Update, 4 pm: Well, whaddya know? The photo sphere images have mysteriously disappeared from Google Maps, rendering our embeds defunct. Guess you might want to go ahead and set up that meeting after all.
Employees have been populating ExxonMobil’s new consolidated Springwoods Village campus since last year, but the company hasn’t exactly opened the place up to visitors. Which makes it a little odd that immersive virtual tours of the place, featuring both indoor and outdoor spaces around the 385-acre complex, have now appeared within Google Maps. If you just want to have a look around, there’s no need to bug your employee pal to arrange an on-site “business meeting” for you. All you need to do is poke around the photo spheres. From each spot you’ll have
360-degree 4π steradian views around you, if you click and drag within the image:
The photo sphere views appear to have been posted by a visiting ExxonMobil employee who took the images using the Google Photo Sphere app available on both Android and iOS phones. (Each image posted here can be expanded to full screen with a click on the icon at the top right of the image.)
A few interiors are available for lookarounds as well. If you’re familiar with the campus, feel free to provide a narrative or color commentary in the comments section below.
If the embedded images aren’t showing up in your browser, you can also view them within Google Maps.
