Virtual Heritage Walk
The Virtual Heritage Walk compliments the City's existing on-line heritage building database and allows the viewer to explore the City's heritage buildings in a virtual setting. The 360-degree image technology used in the virtual walk provides a unique and engaging introduction to Nanaimo and its heritage buildings. These walks are based on heritage walk brochures produced by the City's Heritage Commission.
Virtual Heritage Walks are accessed via CityMap, which requires Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 running on a Windows operating system. Please read the user documentation before using the Virtual Heritage Walk.
