Virtual Austin Launches in “The Real World Online” on

Web Surfers Can Experience a 3-D Version of Austin’s City Streets, Restaurants, Hotels and More

WALTHAM, Mass. (August 12, 2008) — Today, EveryScape, creator of “The Real World Online,” launched a virtual 3-D version of Austin, TX. EveryScape is creating the first photorealistic interactive experience that lets anyone online explore Austin’s interiors and exteriors by walking down streets, and going inside local restaurants, hotels, landmarks and more. Now on visitors to Austin can virtually explore the famous Pennybacker Bridge, stroll through the Zilker Metropolitan Park and check out the Texas State Capitol at

“EveryScape offers people a free online tool to discover new destinations or learn more about their own community,” said Jim Schoonmaker, EveryScape’s CEO. “The Real World Online is an incredible resource that transcends traditional maps, reviews, videos and photos. Austin is one of the country’s fastest growing cities and now with EveryScape anyone can experience the city’s true essence from the comfort of their personal computer.”

Starting today with Phase I complete, Web surfers can visually explore all of Austin’s exterior destinations, such as landmarks, neighborhood streets, find local businesses by category or name, as well as look up any location at EveryScape also incorporates enhanced community features within “The Real World Online,” including a one-click meta search (serves the gateway to the Web), World Tagging (businesses can upload their own photos and videos), and “Scape Memos” (private links shared through email that ID people’s favorite locations to share with friends).

Phase II is currently underway, which will offer local businesses the opportunity to showcase their physical locations with a “Storefront Listing” or with an enhanced “Mini-WebScape” that provides a 3-D experience of the businesses’ interiors. For Austin, EveryScape serves as a unique marketing tool since most tourists make their choices – for lodging, dining, sightseeing, shopping, etc. – online before arriving. These listings also increase real-world foot traffic to a business location and offer business owners an opportunity to highlight restaurant menus, products, services and much more.

Austin businesses interested in becoming part of EveryScape on “The Real World Online” should contact EveryScape Sales at (781) 250-4765.
