EveryScape Partners with Mission Merchants Association to Showcase Local Businesses

Mission District Comes to “The Real World Online”

San Francisco, CA (December 12, 2008) — Today, EveryScape, creator of “The Real World Online,” announced a partnership with the Mission Merchants Association to showcase local businesses within EveryScape’s immersive photorealistic world. “The Real World Online” is the first interactive experience that lets anyone online explore San Francisco’s interiors and exteriors by walking down streets and going inside local businesses and landmarks. Now with EveryScape visitors to the Mission District can virtually walk through the community exploring storefronts, restaurants and hotels in full detail at www.everyscape.com and www.missionmerchants.com.

“EveryScape lets people discover new destinations and serves as an incredible resource that goes beyond traditional maps, reviews, videos and photos,” said Jim Schoonmaker, CEO of EveryScape, Inc. “The Mission District’s eclectic variety of shops, restaurants and nightlife truly offers something for everyone. Now anyone planning a visit to San Francisco can experience the area virtually from the comfort of their home or office.”

When Phase I launches in December, Web surfers will be able to visually explore Mission District exteriors, such as landmarks and neighborhood streets, find local businesses by category or name, as well as look up any location both at www.EveryScape.com and through its partner, www.missionmerchants.com. EveryScape recently incorporated enhanced features within “The Real World Online,” including a one-click meta search that serves as the gateway to the Web, World Tagging so businesses can upload their own photos and videos, and a larger viewing experience.

Phase II is currently underway, which offers local businesses the opportunity to showcase their physical locations with a “Storefront Listing” or with an enhanced “WebScape” that provides a 3-D experience of the businesses’ interiors. For the Mission District, EveryScape is a unique marketing tool since prospective travelers as well as locals make their choices – for where to live, whether renting or owning a home, hotels, dining, entertainment, shopping, etc. – online before arriving. These listings also increase virtual foot traffic to a business location and offer business owners an opportunity to highlight restaurant menus, products, services and much more.

"Partnering with EveryScape gives anyone in the world instant access to Mission District Businesses,” said Michael Gardner, Mission District store owner and Board Member of Mission Merchant Association. “While the Mission District’s diverse restaurant, retail and nightlife offerings have long attracted a local following, EveryScape gives us the opportunity to better promote the District to tourists and visitors to San Francisco.”
