Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
The Worldwide Transportation Library (WWTL, http://wwtl.info) today announces a photography tour of Morocco. In March, the WWTL will visit the North African country to explore selected roadways beginning at the Atlantic coast and leading towards the Mediterranean Sea. As part of this study, photographs and videos will be taken on-site at Casablanca, the commerce capital of Morocco, as well as the bordertown of Fnideq and the de jure capital of Rabat.
All content captured from this tour will be exclusively shared on the WWTL website. Each photograph entry will be accompanied by contextual data including GPS coordinates, distance charts, and factual trivia about local road conditions and nearby cultural landmarks. All captures will be made available to the public by April.
"What makes this photography tour so significant is that we've never been to Africa before," states Carl Rogers, owner of the Worldwide Transportation Library. "Africa is also the last continent that the WWTL hasn't explored. What makes Morocco a wonderful jumping point into Africa is its rich history of Arabic traditions that were interwoven with French and Spanish influences. The intent of the WWTL is to capture this incredible tapestry of culture by recognising the roadways and cultural landmarks that we'll come across."
Today, with five continents worth of highway and railroad captures, the WWTL caters to tourists who map their own travels. Their website also serves as a web-resource for viatology (i.e., the scientific study of roads), showcasing an expansive slideshow of photographs, videos, and full-circle panoramic views. As a global supplier of media, the WWTL also offers translations in French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
