Tell the stories of your community with the ZoomTour, a new addition to the GIS Planning lineup of innovative online software. Give your imagination free rein to build compelling theme-based, self-guided tours with our intuitive, user-friendly cloud based software. It's easy to do and there are so many ways to use it. If you can map it, we can help you tour it.
Tours begin with a destination on a map. Users self-guide by interacting with content at each stop. Tell viewers more with descriptive text, images, video, audio and/or data. Add stops along the tour with descriptions and media. Integrate data charts, heat maps, infographics or property reports. List website URLs and/or social media handles for organizations along the way.
Welcome users at the first destination on the map. Use the text description to set the scene and explain what you'll be exploring along the way, using text, images, video, audio, 360° map views and data.
Your tour will depart from the first stop on the map. When building the tour, you can enter this with an address or geographical coordinates. Each stop along the way will be indicated with a pin at a specific place on the map.
Where will we go next? Help your tour users orient by building in Google's interactive Street View. These snapshots on different locations help them get up close and personal, feeling like if they were there.
Let your users explore at any stop with a 360° interactive tour. Using Google’s familiar interface, they can use their mouse or track pad to move the view in all directions or explore down a road or path.
Add robust data by integrating reports from GIS Planning’s suite data tools: infographics, property reports, workforce, consumer spending, business and industry, along with data visualizations in charts of thematic heat maps.
Fill in the details at each of the stops along your tour by adding different images and video. Users can scroll through them to get added detail and information about the sights and sounds of each location.
Get creative! ZoomTour lets you design the theme-based tours your region needs to showcase important features.
ZoomTour is cloud based software that your team can use to create as many different tours as you want. Users add their own content in a variety of different formats (including data from GIS Planning's suite of GIS data tools) to create compelling virtual tours on an unlimited variety of themes. From economic development and commercial real estate to tourism, festivals & events, featured anchor companies and workforce attraction, your imagination is the only limit.
ZoomTour is all about your own content. Each stop along the tour will be shown on a map (take advantage of Google Maps' Street View and 3D rotation, as well as 360° flyovers), title and text description. The editor makes it easy to add images, video, audio (MP3), data from your other GIS Planning suite of tools, URLs, social media links and more. You can add as many stops as you like and illustrate them with different kinds of media for a compelling online journey.
No training needed! Our user-friendly ZoomTour dashboard walks you through all the steps of creating, editing and sharing your different, theme-based tours. Each step comes with easy to follow instructions to ensure tours are ready to wow. Take advantage of our FAQs and the ZoomTour Marketing Toolkit in your Help Center for practical ideas to make the most of these powerful online tours.
Your finished theme-based virtual tours can be easily shared with a URL. Add it to your website. Send it in an email. Build it into your PowerPoint slide decks. Include it in your proposals and responses to RFPs. Put it in your email campaigns or email newsletters.
