Introduction

A grant-funded project at the University of Florida

EcoTour is a mobile, augmented reality walking tour that connects the ecological history of Florida’s Paynes Prairie State Park to current environmental issues. Using an interactive map and augmented reality technology, visitors can scan signs within the park to access multimedia content, including archived audio-visual media related to specific physical locations. EcoTour creates a platform for ecological awareness that visitors can use while in the park space.
