There are special software to stitch pictures. The one I know is called Panorama Factory (http://www.panoramafactory.com/). Make sure you use tripod and for the software to stitch properly, allow some overlapping areas (15-25%) between pictures.
actually i could already do a 360 but what i was looking for was infact 360 n 180. ie you can pan around the entire place, up and down and all around. it would seem as if you are actually standing there.

a decent panaromic pan head (manfrotto, etc) costs about $400+++... can adjust the number of clicks, angle of plane, etc. my fren has one and i've been trying to borrow it to try out some 360 degree shots...
went to CP peninsula today to check out the pan heads and were suprised to see how elaborate those things were. There wasnt any stock for the heads but there was a tripod with the head. It was WAY too expensive.
The guy there told me that the cheapest and lousiest one cost over 200++ and some can even cost a few thousand US dollars
yeah those things are quite scary. i've seen my fren's tripod head and its this bulky thing with knobs all over. given the size and price, i serious wonder how many times will a panoramic tripod head be used, at least for amateurs and hobbyists.
