EATON TOWNSHIP -- You will soon be able to take a virtual tour of the Susquehanna River.

Some folks were capturing images of the river Thursday near Tunkhannock in Wyoming County.

The Chesapeake Conservancy based in Maryland formed the group that started documenting the river in Cooperstown, New York about a week ago. They plan to record images of the 700-mile long river until it runs into the Chesapeake Bay.

The group thinks the virtual map will allow people to explore the Susquehanna.

"You'll be able to, if you want to go out fishing, and want to find a new spot, you literally can just click through and be like, 'Oh, I haven't been there before," explained raft guide Sam Christy.

The crew hopes to have the maps finished by the end of this year. It will then be posted to the conservancy's website for anyone to view.
