Virtual tour, Entrance test, Image stitching, Geolocation


The University of Bengkulu administers college entrance exams, however some test takers still require assistance in locating the correct room, despite the building being marked. It is crucial to avoid errors in finding the right test room, as it can cause potential students to waste valuable time. Therefore, a more precise and practical solution is necessary to provide information on test locations. This study designs a location-based virtual tour that offers a 360-degree view, providing information on the location of each building and the conditions inside and outside each test room. The virtual tour encompasses 81 buildings, including test rooms, with 28 to 32 images captured at each location, then stitched together using image stitching techniques. The goal of the virtual tour is to create a comprehensive view of the test location and provide more detailed information on the room's condition. Furthermore, the usability of this virtual tour was tested on 140 high school students as potential test participants, utilizing the System Usability Scale (SUS) to evaluate its effectiveness, resulting in a score of 72.19. In other words, the virtual tour was found to be an effective tool in helping users understand the test location.
