To make seeing famous locations and monuments around the world more accessible to the average consumer, Graphixware has put together the 3D mapping app StreetTrax that virtually transports users to famous tourist sites around the world via a smartphone. The app uses 360-degree imaging footage to showcase the area in an immersive experience that can be done from the confront of one's home. Users can look up and temporarily visit dozens of noteworthy and must-see locations such as the White House, the Salem Witch Dungeon Museum or the Coliseum.

StreetTrax goes beyond platforms with 3D mapping features by allowing consumers to virtually enter the spaces and see detailed 360-degree depictions inside rooms and other noteworthy locations. The app charges a fee for entrance to tourist locations at a fraction of the cost it would be to go visit in person.
