                                           Ex parte Shari P. Olefson                                           
                                            Appeal No. 2004-1929                                               
                                          Application No. 08/664,164                                           
                                                  ON BRIEF                                                     
             Before PATE, MCQUADE, and BAHR, Administrative Patent Judges.                                     
             PATE, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                                
                                           DECISION ON APPEAL                                                  
                   This is an appeal from the final rejection of claims 1, 3-13, 15-17, 19-28, and 30-         
             37.  These are the only claims in the application.  Claims 2, 14, 18, and 29 were                 
             cancelled in Paper No. 9.                                                                         
                   The claimed invention is directed to a method for viewing real estate properties.           
             The method allows the user to select real estate properties based upon entered criteria.          
             With a terminal, the user can view rotational panoramic images of the properties and              
             display additional panoramic visual images in response to a change perspective                    
             command.  Thus, the user can go on a “tour” of real estate property without physically            
             visiting the property.  The method includes displaying a floor plan of the selected home
