Making Tracks with Google Trekker Phase 2 Complete

Making Tracks with Google Trekker in Southeast Tennessee, North Georgia and Southwest North Carolina. Phase 2 Complete.

January 18, 2018- Southeast Tennessee Development is excited to have partnered with the Southeast Industrial Development Association and Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association to collect imagery of special places in our region in partnership with Google Maps. We borrowed the Trekker camera, hiked around these unique and amazing locations, and will be sharing these images for processing and future inclusion as panoramic images that everyone can see and enjoy on Street View in Google Maps. This technology and opportunity provides an enhanced way for visitors to connect with these special places in a way they may never have before. In fact, we expect many people may never get to explore these places in person, so we are so happy to open it up for the world to enjoy.

 

We are excited to announce the completion of Phase 2 of collecting imagery on Google Maps; Phase 1 of imagery went live in August 2017. Look for project updates and explore some of the highlights at Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association (SETTA).

Some of the unique locations that can now be explored online include the Murphy Riverwalk, Bell Mountain Park, Toccoa River Swinging Bridge, and we even captured the highest point in Georgia… Brasstown Bald Observation Tower & Trail.

 

As part of community and economic development within the Southeast Tennessee Development District, the Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association (SETTA) works to develop and market tourism assets within the 10 counties of Southeast Tennessee in partnership with the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development and tourism partners throughout the region.
