2015 Virtual Tour Project – NY State Parks/DEC

nyparksscreenCirclescapes will be creating high-resolution 360° virtual tours for 2 New York State parks and 20 DEC campgrounds this summer. The virtual tours are designed to be a marketing and informational tool that allows you to showcase your park’s beauty and amenities to potential visitors on their computers, tablets, and smartphones.

Project Information:

  • Each tour will feature approximately 4-8 panoramic scenes (aka – “spins”) of your choosing.
  • The virtual tours will also contain slideshows with approximately 6 still images.
  • Typical locations for spins and stills are: natural features like waterfalls, canyons, trailheads and swimming holes, or attractions like playgrounds, cabins, historic buildings, camp areas, visitor centers and other gathering places. We will do research in advance, but look to your intimate knowledge of the park to lead us to its best features.
  • The spins and stills can contain people’s faces (if they are willing) and props (i.e., a set up tent, a campfire, a picnic spread) but not all spins have to contain props or people. We will work with the resources we have on hand to create the most visually interesting perspectives of your park.
