Open Hand Studios and the Umm el-Jimal Project are constructing an innovative online tour to complement Umm el-Jimal’s walking path. When complete, the site will link audio, video, and other content via Quicktime virtual reality photography and cover over 30 major points of interest inside the ancient ruins. These points will follow the site signage currently under creation by the project in conjunction with Siyaha, a USAID-funded Jordanian tourism development program which is scheduled for completion in 2013.
Stay tuned! The virtual tour is in the final stages of development. Check back regularly for more.
