Celebration Park - Snake River, Idaho - 360 interactive panoramas on a Google Map.

Recently I visited Celebration Park on the Snake River in Southwest Idaho.  This area is a developed park where educational programs are held to learn about the many Native American petroglyphs that exist in the area. Nearby there is also a historic railroad bridge that spans the river.

I walked around the area and shot several 360 degree panorama views.  Katy Flanagan and I (Mountain Visions) produced the high definition photos into interactive panoramas that you can view full screen and posted them on the Google Map below.

Boise River Enhancement Network - Sharing Information Via an Online Community

In June 2012, we (Mountain Visions) started a unique online community networking project for the Boise River Enhancement Network (BREN)  Currently we are maintaining and updating the site as community members are collaborating on a two year effort to create a comprehensive enhancement plan for the long range future.
People interested in sharing, discussing and organizing enhancement concepts events and projects are encouraged to join this BREN “On Line / All the Time” communication effort.

Recently on the BREN site we have also initiated the experimental collaborative mapping project below in an attempt to start the creation of a comprehensive and interactive Google Earth/Map of the boise River Watershed.  This map provides a way for BREN members to identify map place marks that provide transparent web based information links to information resources and example restoration and enhancement projects that have happened in the past, that are currently in progress and those that are, or might be, planned for the future.
