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

WALTHAM, Mass. (September 9, 2008) — Today, EveryScape, creator of “The Real World Online,” launched a virtual 3-D replica of San Diego, Calif. EveryScape is creating the first photorealistic interactive experience that lets anyone online explore San Diego’s exteriors and interiors by walking down streets, and going inside local restaurants, hotels, stores and more. Now on visitors to San Diego can virtually explore the picturesque Balboa Park, check out the city’s historic Spanish influenced architecture and stroll along the beautiful beaches at

“EveryScape offers San Diego tourists and even its local residents a free online tool to discover new destinations or learn more about their city,” said Jim Schoonmaker, EveryScape’s CEO. “People can turn to EveryScape for a true sense of what San Diego is like and make educated vacation plans from their personal computers.”

With Phase I now complete, Web surfers can visually explore all of San Diego’s exterior destinations, such as landmarks and 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” where with just one click of the mouse, users can read reviews from Yelp, see photos from Flickr, watch videos from YouTube and search the Web with Yahoo! Users can also create their own “Scape Memos,” which is a private quick list of favorite locations that can be shared via email.

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 San Diego, EveryScape serves as a unique marketing tool since most tourists make their choices – for lodging, dining, sightseeing, shopping, etc. – online before arriving. These listings increase real-world foot traffic to a business location and offer business owners an opportunity to highlight restaurant menus, products, accommodations and much more through their own uploaded photos and videos with the “World Tagging” tool.

San Diego businesses interested in becoming part of EveryScape on “The Real World Online” should contact EveryScape Sales at (781) 250-4800.
