Here are some examples of what drone cinematography calls a Point of Interest. These are made by making a very smooth circular video of a building or some other object. Each example is a bit different. The POI can focus on a central spot and flies around it or the video shows the surrounding scene, from the point of view of the object. There are also variations of this show here.
The first example is of a private home. The drone flies around the home, while keeping the home in frame as it circles 360 degrees.
This is the Manchester View, a luxury hotel complex just outside Manchester, Vermont. The client asked us to show the valley to the north of the Manchester View as well as the aerial view of the complex.

This POI is of Island Pond, taken from the point of view the downtown area and the big lumber yard.
