San Diego CA (PRWEB) August 7, 2005
CrowÂs Eye, the only provider of artistic 3-D mapping software solutions for destination marketing, today announced the release of the CrowÂs Eye 3-D Internet Mapping Solution, which allows destination marketing organizations to make their destination stand out from others by artistically promoting their uniqueness.
The solution consists of 3-D artistic maps of the destination, a hosted Internet visitor guide/map printing application that integrates into the destination web site, and visitor map printing kiosk software that can be used in the visitorÂs bureau and distributed free of charge to local hotels at the destination.
ÂWe developed the software based on our seven years of experience providing advertising-based 3-D artistic maps for tourist destinations,Â said Alexander Demushkane, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of CrowÂs Eye. ÂDestinations compete to attract tourists, and maps are a form of communication. Our artistic 3-D maps help destination marketers convey additional knowledge and personality of a destination through the appearance of buildings, hotels, mountains, forests and open space. This is not possible today with the existing Âflat mapÂ based technology.Â
Visitors benefit from the CrowÂs Eye proprietary Internet Mapping Solution as they can personalize and print colorful, hi-resolution Walkabout MapsÂ tailored to their specific interests and needs. The visitor-generated Walkabout MapÂ provides an artistic 3-D view of the destination, complete with the visitorÂs highlighted places of interest, including restaurant selections, activities, entertainment and events, things to explore, and driving directions to all visitor selections.
ÂThe CrowÂs Eye Internet Mapping Solution also is a revenue generator for the destination marketer, based on our industry first Pay-per-Print Internet map advertising model, which is backed by our 100% money-back guarantee,Â said Bob Vander Woude, President and CEO of CrowÂs Eye. ÂAdvertisers obtain qualified customers who have expressed an interest in their product or service, rather than hoping for results from non-qualified mass print advertising. We are looking to partner with advertising sales organizations that serve tourist destinations as we rapidly expand across the U.S. and to international destinations, as well as integrating our solutions with other organizations that are serving destination marketing organizations.Â
