Initially developed and published for Ventura Botanical Gardens, the Story Trail Tours App is offered to nonprofit institutions through a Commons collaborative. The App uses the distributed information architecture of the cloud and ArcGIS Online to deliver its maps, tour stops, and content. The App is GPS-enabled and includes a guided tour feature that senses the proximal location of a visitor to a tour stop and streams relevant educational content including audio, image slideshow, and video.
