Virtual tours

Since the dawn of the Web in the early 1990s, internet advocates have argued
that one of the Web¹s most powerful applications would be to open up new
worlds to people and help them easily experience faraway places.

A new survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project finds that 45% of
online American adults have taken advantage of this internet application and
taken virtual tours of another location online. That represents 54 million
adults who have used the internet to venture somewhere else.

On a typical day, more than two million people are using the internet to
take a virtual tour.

Some of the most popular virtual tour destinations include museums, tourist
and vacation locales, colleges and prep schools, real estate, historical
exhibits, parks and nature preserves, public places such as the White House
and the Taj Mahal, and hotels and motels.
