The Mexican government and Google Mexico on Tuesday signed an agreement on providing Google with Mexico’s cultural heritage information to help revive tourism.
Under their arrangement, the National Anthropology and History Institute (INAH) will provide photographs, videos and other information to Google Mexico. INAH will also provide maps and floor plans for its museums, archeological areas and historical monuments.
Google Maps will offer visitors a tour guide to take them to different cultural destinations in Mexico.
John Farrel, head of Google Mexico, said that before deciding to buy or travel, people often access the Internet to get information, so this program will make tours in Mexico convenient and accessible.
In Mexico, some 27 million people or 85 percent of Mexico’s Internet population, use Google’s tools.
