Yes, he has used a 3rd party app to create the website tour. The renderings of each 360 pano however were rendered with Twilight. Twilight will not automatically build a spherical tour website for you. I like 3D Vista spherical tours software for this purpose - it's expensive, but one of the easiest programs to use I have ever tried.

Did the app use the Twilight 350 panorama and then allow him to add the other clickable items (like the clickable icons to take you to another room and the clickable icons to pop up the explanation of materials)?

Some time ago, I had looked at Shapespark and it had all of these features but it is also a rendering engine. Just out of curiosity, does Twilight have any plans for anything like this in the future?

All you need to do is: register at www.roundme.com for free and upload you twilightpanos. All shown features are included at the free version.

If I want to upload the panos to my own webspace I am using pano2vr for some years. It is creating tours out of your twilight- panos like this one: http://doerr.bplaced.net/visu/oflj/oflj004.htm

OK I cannot view you original panaroma on mu iPad but it works fine on my laptop

My real question was how you added all of the interactivity to your panorama images that you created with Twilight. Did you do that with Roundme? I went their web site and did not see anything about how to do the things you have accomplished (which I think is really neat).

you can upload a single pano. After it is upoaded, you can add more panos to make a tour. Or you can upolad single images into your panos. Easy and intuitiv to use.

Twilight is just preparing all your pictures but all the interactive functions depend on the software of the provider.

I just went and looked at the site from my laptop and now have a much better understanding. Wish there was a way to accomplish this on your own server instead of having to upload your stuff to the roundme server/site. I have to admit though, this overall capabilities is pretty impressive.

If you have your own server, use 3D Vista, it will help you create your panoramic tour, it's the easiest software I've ever used. Then you export your tour as an html with all the files, you place that in a folder on your website, and place the link to the html anywhere you like.

Thanks Fletch - looks kind of interesting but also kind of expensive but then it looks like you get more control.

Twilight is giving you just the picture (Like a photographer), it depends on you, what are you going to do with it.
