1. A method for providing an interactive virtual representation of a geographic location expressed through at least one of a three-dimensional and a two dimensional representation and combinations thereof generated by at least one of an operator and a user;

  • said method comprising the steps of;

    creating first images of the geographic location expressed to the user through a two-dimensional map to allow the user to navigate along the two-dimensional map in different directions;

    creating second images of the geographic location expressed to the user through a three-dimensional representation allowing the user to selectively navigate along the three-dimensional representation in different directions whereby the three-dimensional representation is externally introduced to the system as an interactive model;

    storing the first images and the second images in a searchable format; and

    creating an interactive virtual tour of the geographic location by correlating the two-dimensional map with the three-dimensional representation of the interactive model enabling the user to conduct an internet search by geographic location thereby identifying places of interest associated with the geographic location depicted by the first and second images.
