KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The recently-revamped TennesseeRiverValleyGeoTourism.org provides expanded information on indoor and outdoor attractions, including festivals, local places of interests, lodging, and restaurants in a seven-state region including Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
According to the Tennessee River Valley (TRV) Stewardship Council, some of the new features include:
– Responsive platform across multiple devices;
– Mapbox maps integration with listings;
– Nearby places of interest highlighted with each listing;
– Blog module; and
– Built-in geospatial data alongside other information and files.
“The new platform for the Tennessee River Valley MapGuide website offers easy access to valuable tourism information that highlights all there is to see and do in the seven-state region,” said Julie Graham, spokesperson for the TRV Stewardship Council. “While indoor attractions across the United States are closed during this time of self-quarantine, many outdoor recreation areas are remaining open. The Tennessee River Valley is home to many natural areas, miles of walking trails and nature preserves offering wide open spaces to experience and fresh air to take in.”
With an area covering 41,028 square miles, the Tennessee River Valley is home to vibrant river cities, 49 lakes, hundreds of waterfalls, vineyards, trails, large tracts of public recreational lands and small, rural communities. The Tennessee River Valley Geotourism MapGuide is designed to showcase the natural, cultural, and historic attractions which define the region to national and international audiences.
“The new platform offers users responsive interactive experiences with the mapguide, which was not available on all mobile devices with the previous platform,” added Graham.
