The panoramas are best viewed in fullscreen mode: click on the fullscreen button (rightmost in the toolbar at bottom of each panorama) to toggle fullscreen display.
Most of the earlier panoramas (up until the mid-2000s) were made using a rotational panoramic film camera and so are 'cylindrical' (they do not show the zenith and nadir of a scene). More recent panoramas were made using a digital camera and are 'spherical', recording zeniths and nadirs.
Where scales are shown on those plans that are rendered in 3D perspective they should be regarded as indicative only, being accurate only for those parts of the model nearest the viewpoint.
