OUR PLACE and GOOGLE partner to promote WORLD HERITAGE locations

Madrid June 2012                          PRESS RELEASE

OUR PLACE World Heritage and GOOGLE have entered a partnership agreement where Our Place will be supplying its exclusive images to the new Google “World Wonders” initiative.

Launched in Madrid at the Palcio de Bellas Art by the Spanish Minister of Culture, this new project combines Google Street View technology with photographic images supplied by Our Place and some other partners. The aim is to give the on-line viewer a unique picture of some of the world’s most important locations.
The project has been launched with and initial 110 plus locations and features over 300 Our Place photographs.
The World Wonders project fits well with Our Place’s aim of promoting the World’s Heritage to the widest possible audience. It will be particularly effective in reaching the younger generation in whose hands these heritage assets will eventually rest.
“Photographs can communicate effectively across all cultural and language barriers. The internet is a valuable tool that can be used to help highlight these stunning locations, and we are pleased that Google recognises the value of our extensive photographic archive” says Geoff Steven, the founder and CEO of OUR PLACE. “The more the world’s citizens can be made aware of these important places, the more they can begin to care for them. In turn this will hopefully help ensure their preservation for the future” says Geoff.
OUR PLACE is continuing to photographically document the planets more important places and is looking forward to contributing more images to the Google “World Wonders” initiative.
