I did some googling this afternoon (now many hours ago) for virtual tour 
software and such.  It's not the same thing as the requirment, but leads 
back in the direction of hiring a photographer to take a slew of pictures.

Kasmir said, "There are many ways to make it look like 3D, but no real 
3D."  Yes I got that.  I took a look at the wikipedia article.  Both 
that and the virtual tour software seem to have panoramic cameras and 
lots of images in the toolkit. 

If my client pursues the 3D stuff, what type of specialist would we/he 
be in the market for, what skillset?
