How to create online virtual tours for your community with ZoomTour

Design ZoomTours to walk us down your main street and show off local businesses, showcase each of your target industry sectors, featuring anchor companies and assets that make your location unique. If film locations are important in your community, offer a tour of popular locations with descriptions of their assets and links to film and video produced there. ZoomTour is tailor-made for tourism too - showcase your top restaurants or festival lineup. Offer a tour of your museums, areas of historical interest or parks and recreation draws. Let your imagination be their guide.

These smart online tours are designed to be created by communities of all sizes on themes of their choice, in order to promote notable features in their region. Stops along the tour are denoted on maps, complemented by text, images, video, audio, different map views (Google Street View, 3D rotation, terrain, hybrid, etc), as well as data reports from GIS Planning's suite of online GIS data tools. Because it's so easy to use, you don't need to rely on trained designers anyone can build beautiful, compelling tours.
