EagleOutside.com offers high-tech trail maps to enhance summer adventure
To kick start the summer season, the Town of Eagle commissioned 6600 to develop an amazing tool for exploring the activities available in the area. The site’s user-friendly, high-tech approach will set a new standard in recreation-based tourism. Located 30 miles west of Vail, Eagle is Colorado’s best kept secret. It’s quickly becoming an outdoor adventure destination for travelers in the know, and those looking to escape the crowds that often surround Colorado’s popular mountain towns.
EagleOutside.com is designed to sell Eagle’s recreational opportunities, businesses, festivals and events to visitors. What sets it apart is a comprehensive mapping system integrated with Google Maps API. This provides the user with easily accessible GPS data including campsites, parking, trailheads, mileage markers, intersections, fishing and rafting access points to name a few. All activities and nearby amenities are plotted in a user-friendly fashion on a single page.
These GPS labels are further enhanced to create a unique photo navigation capability. Site designers embedded the labels into thousands of photos. A corresponding map pin marks each image’s location. Users simply click through any trail’s gallery to view the entire route. New visitors will use the detailed notes on intersections, water crossings and scenic viewpoints as a tool to preview terrain. All this information is delivered on an easy to navigate interface, and fast.
No detail is spared, and site designers are aware that there is nothing like the feel of a crisp map in your hands. Downloadable directions are also available on the site, and include everything a new visitor needs to enjoy the great outdoors in Eagle.Visit Site
