Touch tablet computers like the iPad excel at showing off stunning photographs, and the free Fotopedia Heritage app provides a great demonstration of this capability.

By clicking the “i” icon for more info on a photo, users can view a description of official UNESCO World Heritage sites as well as Wikipedia info for locations.

Click the the globe icon to reveal a Google Map of locations. This particular mountain is in Mount Aspiring National Park on the South Island of New Zealand.

If you are having a snow or ice day this week in North America, take a free, virtual field trip via Fotopedia Heritage. The app also runs on iPhones and iPod Touches, but looks much more impressive on the iPad.

Hat tip to App Safari.
