Version 2.2

can be ordered online, or purchased at the St Andrews Preservation Trust Museum in North Street.

It's a fantastic tool to prepare for, or remember your time in St Andrews. It is also a wonderful gift to give to someone interested in St Andrews if you can bear to part with it ... ( you could always order 2 ! )

These CD-ROMS run on the most widely used computers, using Microsoft's Windows operating system.

The CDROM features ...

Over 80 interactive panoramas are organized as a virtual tour of the town using the 3-D map of St Andrews as a user interface and are significantly higher resolution than those which can be transmitted over the Web.
