Hoover Dam Panoramic Virtual Tour

Hoover Dam Virtual Tour.

On the last day of the 2014 International Virtual Reality Photographer Association (IVRPA) conference in Las Vegas we took an excursion to the Hoover Dam to capture some panoramic images of the dam and surrounding areas. Below is the 360 degree interactive virtual tour we created from the panoramic images we captured at the massive Hoover Dam.

While down on the dam itself you can stand in two states at the same time. You can see this in one of the various panoramic images in the tour above. You can be in Nevada and Arizona at the same time or have a little fun by jumping from one state to another.

About the Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon that backs up the Colorado River, on the border of Arizona and Nevada. Construction began in 1931 during the Great Depression utilizing thousands of workers, with several hundred men losing their lives by the time of its completion in 1936. Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated the dam on September 30, 1935. The dam was named after President Herbert Hoover.

Spanning 1,244 ft and standing at 726.4 ft tall the dam backs up the Colorado River, creating what is now known as Lake Mead. Lake Mead is in turn the largest reservoir in the United States by volume. The dam is located southeast of Las Vegas and has become a major tourist attraction with nearly a million people visiting each year.

Being the 6th largest hydroelectric Dam in the United States the Hoover Dam is operated by U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and creates an amazing 4.2 billion kWh annually and supplies electricity to Nevada, Arizona and areas of California. The dam serves around 8 million people with power a year. The largest hydroelectric dam in the USA is Grand Coulee and it produces a whopping 20 billion kWh annually.
