Google Trekker BC Project Results Launched
Prince George, B.C. – Last year, Destination BC worked with Google on a special project that had “Trekkers” criss- crossing the province taking images off the beaten path.
Now, Destination BC has launched “BC Journeys” using the images captured by the Google Trekker’s 15 separate cameras that collected a 360 degree panoramic imagery of places not accessible by car.
The imagery has been coupled with stories, interviews, drone footage and 360 degree video and photography and now launched on the new BC Journeys platform. The BC Journeys platform currently features a number of areas outside the lower mainland, including the Chilcotin, the Cariboo, Tumbler Ridge and Haida Gwaii. More of the northern region will be added soon.
Click here to see the first results, as a “Trekker” captured images of Windfall Lake Trail near Tumbler Ridge. The Tumbler Ridge page also offers a fly-over waterfalls, a birds eye view of a mountain climber, and imagery of the UNESCO Global Geopark.
