About NC360

Inspired by the 100th anniversary of North Carolina state parks in 2016, the N.C. Department of Information Technology set out to find a way to use technology to highlight these natural resources and make them more accessible to those unable to visit them easily.

The iCenter partnered with Google to participate in the Street View Trekker program. With a Street View camera mounted on a hiking pack, a team of DIT and state parks employees traveled the state over several months to capture 360-degree imagery of 30 sites. The imagery was then added to Google Street View. 

In 2018, the Trekker returned to North Carolina to kick off the project’s second phase. A team of DIT employees captured imagery of 20  cultural and historic sites, as well as parks. The project was also expanded with 360-degree imagery, including indoors, from other cameras.

The project will continue to grow and evolve as a way to provide immersive, virtual access to all North Carolina has to offer.
