Take a three-dimensional journey through 28 of the United States National Parks. This 3D presentation of the beauty and natural wonder of Photographed in both 2D and 3D, these 800 pictures portray the best that the U.S. Park System has to offer. From Arizona's Grand Canyon to Hawaii's Volcanoes, these colorful images become more eye-catching in real 3D. Red/cyan glasses are required to view them as 3-D though each scene is alternately presented in normal two dimensions as well.
A map and an introductory description of each park beckons you to make the virtual journey into Yosemite, Yellowstone and dozens of nature's best places on the planet. With this app, you will better appreciate the national treasure that our parks represent.
A Link is included that will take you to a web site where free or low cost glasses can be obtained. A variety of hundreds of other 3D pictures can be viewed by clicking on any of a number of other links.
Has potential to be very good
Colors are muted. It needs more saturation of the color. Also, additional parks such as Glacier National Park would be a good addition.
Otherwise, it is a good source to use prior to going out to the parks to help define the pictures that one might want to take.
Good; needs more parks and more depth
A very nice superficial overview of some of our national parks. Attractive photos, but the descriptive portions are rather superficial. It only treats 28 of 58 national parks, missing some real gems, such as the Dry Tortugas N.P. and the Great Smokey Mountain N.P. Complete the list of parks and beef up the text, and I'll give it 5 stars.
