The project is of a collaborative nature: it appears as a portal where
anyone keen on and capable of writing can become an editor
following free registration.
Editors are not expected to be knowledgeable in software programming.
Itineraries can be developed by way of user-friendly visual tools
that are made available free of charge on our portal.
Edited itineraries will be offered for purchase on line in the e-commerce
section of our TourEditor.com homepage (currently in progress).
To become editor you only need to register using the form on the
left hand side.
The instruments made available free of charge can be used to put
together your virtual tour by:
- outlining the tour
- pinpointing “hot spots”
- adding documents, photos and videos from each “hot spot”
- automatically turning texts into audio files (with male and female
voices) to provide mp3 audio editorial commentaries that can be
played while “walking the tour” both in Italian and in other languages.
Editors are provided with a complete tutorial set consisting of some
practical exercises to learn how to use the above mentioned instruments
made available free of charge on our portal. The tutorial set can
be found in the page immediately after the login.
The tours aims at making visitors participate in a virtual sightseeing
among places of major interest using “Map” and “Street Views” from
Google. Each tour is enriched with text documents, audio files and
videos which are made available to visitors as part of the tour.
Itineraries are designed for those people that prior to visiting
a place feel the need to acquire specific information to better prepare
their trip. Or simply for those people who are interested in acquiring
