The North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum has won an award from Google Earth Outreach for the use of Google mapping technology in its updated Online Heritage Trail.
Museum members Kate and Jonathan Hodge volunteered many hours of their time and expertise to create the new Online Heritage Trail, with the help of a Google Earth Outreach Grant.
“The back-end technology we used to create the Trail has only been recently launched by Google,” Jonathan said. “Using Google Maps you can navigate around the Island and zoom into particular areas to see photos of that place from the Museum collection, and experience how it has changed through time.”
The website is based on the real-life NSI Heritage Trail, which can be followed by looking for easily recognisable green signs located across the Island, and which has an accompanying pamphlet that is widely distributed by Redland City Council. The Online Heritage Trail will eventually be accessible from mobile phones, making it a valuable tool for visitors.
“When we won the award, the Online Heritage Trail was featured on Google’s Facebook site and Twitter feed, and there has been an impressive spike in the hits on our website as a result, with lots of overseas interest,” Geoff Moore, Museum President said.
Find the Online Heritage Trail by following the link on the front page of the museum website at http://www.stradbrokemuseum.com.au
