Montana’s first “Geotourism” project — the “Crown of the Continent Geotourism MapGuide” — was completed and launched in-state and on the national scene this March with a statewide press blitz and national media/consumer show event in Washington, D.C. The national event took place at the Adventure in Travel Expo, a high-end consumer travel trade show, sponsored by National Geographic Society’s Adventure magazine.
The MapGuide is the result of a 14-month community-based process to create a printed map and a Web site that highlights “what is so special about this area and what are residents doing to keep it special,” according to the Montana Department of Commerce Web site.
The mapped area covers 10 million acres around the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park in northern Montana, including Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front, Blackfoot Valley, Seeley-Swan Valley, Mission, Flathead and Tobacco valleys, along with southeast British Columbia and southwest Alberta.
