What's on the Rocket Guide to New Caledonia?
The Rocket Guide to New Caledonia is the fastest, most complete, travel planner to New Caledonia ever created. Like the Rocket Guide to Vanuatu, The Rocket Guide to New Caledonia is an interactive program with a very user friendly interface based on satellite and aerial images. It was commissioned by New Caledonia Tourism as a training program for travel agents. The guide combines high resolution satellite and aerial images with full screen images of New Caledonia hotels, resorts in New Caledonia, New Caledonia diving, wildlife and river trekking, New Caledonia golf courses, and New Caledonia maps.
The travel agent training program presents over 700 tourism features of New Caledonia, including accommodation, activities, Noumea city maps, New Caledonia maps of all the islands and roads, points of interest and contact details. These tourism features are shown in full screen high resolution images, including 360 degree panoramas and Virtual Reality sphere images. The images appear nearly instantly when you click or point to a link.

Get Facts not Fantasy
No more hunting through the myriad websites from travel wholesalers and travel agents and hotels - where you can never know if they are giving you accurate information or if they are just "selling" the destination.
The Rocket Guide leaves out the "advertising" and throw-away comments like "the best" and "unsurpassed" and "magnificent" so you can make up your own mind based on non-hyped imagery and clear, factual information.
Starts with all of New Caledonia
The Rocket Guide opens with a full screen satellite image of New Caledonia and a menu that offers links to general information about New Caledonia. There are special sections on the world's largest lagoon, yachting, diving, fly/drive vacations, culture, gourmet restaurants, trekking, conferences and weddings.
Point to anywhere in New Caledonia
The Rocket Guide uses a point and click navigation system to explore New Caledonia from outer space to under the sea.
Point to any part of the island and a brief travel summary instantly pops up with information about that area. Here we have pointed to the southern part of New Caledonia.
Find it Fast
Let's say you wanted to find out about hotels in New Caledonia. Click on the menu item "Where to Stay, Eat, Shop and Party" and then on the sub-menu item "Hotels" to see this summary of hotels and resorts everywhere in New Caledonia.
If you want to stay in Noumea, click on the name Noumea or on the summary bubble that shows how many hotels are in Noumea. Instantly you will be looking at Noumea with a list of hotels and resorts.
Point and Click
Point to the name of a hotel to see some images, a summary of facilities, contact details and a pin flashing on the satellite image showing exactly where the hotel is located.
Click and you are at the hotel.
Click on the hotel's name for a presentation about getting there, facilities, activities, points of interest and contact details.
You'll see what kinds of rooms are available, and a brief summary of each kind of room. There are also links to other facilities, like the restaurant and swimming pool.
Click on a Room to visit it.
Click on a room or suite and instantly see a 360 degree sphere image inside the room along with a summary of room facilities (square meters of floor space, kitchen, TV, WiFi, Terrace, bathroom details - along with a photo of the bathroom.) It's like standing in the middle of the room. Give it a try, click and drag on the image in any direction.
The sphere images on the Rocket Guide are full screen and, like the small version shown here, you can look all around the room, including up and down. The room images are "What you see is what you get" not "set up" for advertising shots.
