State Web site Upgrade

July 7, 2003 - Posted at 9:45 a.m. CDT

Little Rock, Ark.  --  State tourism officials want to make Arkansas' Web site more interesting to potential visitors.

 They are seeking 200-thousand-dollars from the Parks, Recreation and Travel Commission for a redesign.

The director of the state Parks and Tourism Department says the changes will include interactive maps and immersive tours. The maps will help people determine the best routes to take and the distance between locations.

The tours will include still photos, videos and shots that offer a 360-degree view. In May, the commission rejected a proposal to spend nearly $211-thousand-dollars for a redesign after several commissioners said they needed more information.

 The new proposal has been reduced by more than $11,000. The commission is set to consider the new proposal this month.
