Mobile Story Trail Tours w/ Geo-fencing & Multimedia Content Delivery
Track: Mobile and Device Apps
Authors: Michele Dunham, Joseph Cahill, Nathan Strout
Ventura Botanical Gardens and the Redlands Institute are developing a smart phone tours app with ArcGIS Runtime “geo-fencing” technology that senses the proximal location of a user to a tour stop and delivers relevant educational content including audio, image slideshow, and video. Using no in-house infrastructure, the app relies on the distributed information architecture of the “cloud” and ArcGIS Online to deliver its trail map, tour stops, and content.
