Travels with Loadstone

Loadstone offers databases of points, including points of interest, amenities, landscape and infrastructure, for several countries. Here are a few of our adventures in Vancouver, Canada.

Celebration of Light Fireworks

This three-day display of fire in the sky, presented by different countries every year, is a popular summer event in Vancouver. Love a front row seat, so I marked this rock using #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind. Since 2010, I've watched the show from this very spot.

2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver

Visited all the pavilions during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver using #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind and found my way to ziplining over the city.

Vancouver Parks

Launched the Vancouver Parks Database in #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind and spent a sunny day exploring green spaces along the waterfront.

Canada Place

Canada Place in downtown Vancouver used to be a confusing jumble of businesses until I used #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind to mark specific points that helped me get oriented.
