Nature Calls: Bringing 3D Park Tours to the World
Brent Randol has been a nature lover his whole life. As President of Napa Regional Park & Open Space District, we first met when he passionately initiated creating one of the first virtual tour maps offered within a park organization.
Forward thinking in his vision, he was able to bring together the Board of Directors and approve shooting, creating and publishing 3D Virtual Tours of Bothe-Napa Valley Park and neighboring Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park.
We were excited to make it happen! As we could see their old style mapping and web experience needed a new solution – one tailored to the new generation of millennials many who love technology and travel and the countless people of all ages who are online today.
The solution of 3D Virtual Tours provided a means to allow any potential visitor to view the park, cabins, and amenities from anywhere in the world — as close as being there in real time — informing and exciting people to book their reservations online.
And so, this past fall, we were honored to shoot the three cabins at Bothe-Napa Valley Park and Bale Grist Mill and publish these tours for the world to see!
We asked Brent a few questions to get to know him and the Napa Valley Open Space organization better.
