The Hidden World of National Parks

Originally featured in our 05-12-2017 issue, we are excited to revisit this Google Arts & Culture page that allows visitors to take virtual tours of five national parks

This spectacular Google Arts and Culture page was recently awarded the 2017 Webby Award for Best Educational website. Developed in collaboration with the National Park Service, this website allows visitors to experience the wonder of five different national parks in the United States: Kenai Fjords National Park, Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Dry Tortugas National Park. After selecting a park of interest, visitors can take a virtual tour of each park headed by an expert park ranger. These interactive tours include three-dimensional video and camera footage, interactive visuals, historical footage, and more. For example, visitors can observe the rate of glacial melting between 2004 and 2016 in the Kenai Fjords, or use the night sky feature to locate and learn about constellations and stars above Bryce Canyon.
