Minnesota State Park, Trail, and Water Trail Virtual Tours
This project provides panoramic virtual tours of state parks, and panoramic plus video virtual tours of state trails and water trails. Each panoramic virtual tour is accompanied by an accessible/dial-up version highlighting the same scenes.
In an effort to reach out to an increasingly "wired" public wanting visual information to inform their trip planning decisions, Parks and Trails is aiming to ultimately have a virtual tour for every state park and state trail, and for selected water trails as well. These tours provide an immersive experience to the viewer, allowing them to observe selected scenes and locations from 360 degrees, or to watch a video of someone using a particular trail segment. This trip planning visual aid will help people select which park or trail they want to visit, and what to expect once they arrive.
