A 360 photo is a spherical image that captures the entire space surrounding a camera, so you can look around, view a room at different angles and have the same experience you would if you were standing inside that room looking around yourself. Our platform uses 360 photos in a 2:1 equirectangular .jpg file format, this is the typical export format for a 360 photo from most 360 cameras.

You can easily identify an image in this file format as it will appear as a rectangular, stretched out image when presented in 2D. Please find an example 2:1 equirectangular .jpg image below.
