"Interactive Watersheds" 360 degree Virtual Tour Web Sites

This interactive map includes Large-Scale Community-Based Watershed Restoration Partnerships identified by the USDA Forest Service between 1999 and 2001.

In 2000, Mountain Visions, the National Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils (NARC&D), and the Upper Sevier River Community Watershed Project collaborated on a plan to produce unique interactive multimedia web sites for these watershed partnerships. Five of these now include fully produced immersive and interactive 360 degree panorama Virtual Tours and on-line Community Centers.

Main Sevier River

The NARC&D was awarded a national grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to develop websites for five watershed partnerships. In the future, additional community watershed groups in the U.S. may also become involved in the Interactive Watersheds project.

The Upper Sevier River Community Watershed Project web site was the first to be funded and now has a three and one-half year involvement. It has become the model interactive web site for community-based watershed projects in the U.S.

High quality interactive and immersive 360 degree panoramas provide detailed virtual explorations of each of these watersheds that give organizations and individuals a place to learn about and share restoration techniques. Explore these nationwide Interactive Watersheds to understand how large-scale watershed restoration can be achieved and encouraged through the use of technology, community education, and partnerships.

Interactive Watersheds Project Coordinator was Stephen R. Robertson, with the Upper Sevier River Community Watershed Project in Utah.

In 2000 and 2003, these projects were supported by funds from the USDA Forest Service Community-Based Watershed Restoration Partnerships.

In 2001 and 2002, these projects were supported by a grant awarded to the National Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils, Inc. from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF).

Mountain Visions, based in Boise, Idaho, is the multimedia production company creating the photography, videography and interactive web design and production for these websites. Beth Workman of Zeland Studios, Boise, collaborated on the design and graphics of the interactive web sites.
