St. Albert's Servus Credit Union Place is giving residents a new Inside View of the facility through Google. Using the same technology as Google Street View, the City of St. Albert has upgraded the virtual tour of Servus Place that will allow residents to explore the entire facility from their mobile devices and computers.
“As a subset of our Botanical Arts Brand promise, the City of St. Albert is positioning itself to be a SMART City Centre of Excellence,” says Mayor Nolan Crouse. “By using innovative technologies such as Google Inside View, the City is enhancing its customer service and experiences with residents.”
The new Google Inside View allows residents to move through the facility and see the inside of the water play centre, leisure ice, gymnasium, all arenas, both field houses, the fitness centre and track, as well as some meeting rooms. The photography for the tour was taken during off-hours to avoid any people shots. Any remaining photos that include people have been blurred to protect their privacy.
Currently, the Google Inside View is available at google.ca/maps and search Servus Credit Union Place. From there, click on ‘See Inside’ to navigate through the facility. The new tour will be added to the Servus Place section on the stalbert.ca website in the new year. It will include some added capabilities such as being able to choose which room you would like to explore and images of the rooms that aren’t included in the tour.
