Picture-Perfect tourism in the age of technology.
In the age of technology the popularity of Instagram and other media sharing apps, have become the go-to for people looking for vacation spots and areas to explore with the picture-perfect view. By using an interactive medium users can be engaged in their travel like never before. Interactive Tourism creates maps where users can see photographs of high traveled places and link those images to travel destinations around the globe. QR codes on the map take users to additional information, so they can book a trip to these areas through a travel agent or other travel-based services.

The first media type for the Interactive Tourism project is a live interactive board that would play in commuter spaces; like airports, train stations and other similar areas. These boards would be touch-sensitive, showing images of beautiful places to engage users to book travel to these locations.
The second media type would be an app that could be download as a stand alone product tool for finding and booking travel or it can be a triggered download from the QR codes embedded on the interactive board user interface.
The app offers exploration modes to see photos taken in different locations on a larger map so users can pick the picture perfect photo destination for their next big get away.
Users can also save favorite places that they would like to visit.
There is also a search function that allows user to search for specific geographic features, names of locations as well as hotels and locations to stay.
