Your visitors browse to a web page to get a map on their smartphone or tablet that shows their location with a geolocating marker. They can pan the map and also zoom to reveal extra detail. At precise points of interest that you choose, visitors hear browser text-to-speech from scripts you create and update. Additionally you can provide prerecorded audio, and pictures or graphics that are clickable by visitors to link to your external web pages. Geocaching game capability rounds out this self-guiding visitor experience that is always rewarding, and appealing to all ages.
Subscribe to get your own facilitator web page that is accessible from anywhere on an Internet-connected computer (GPS not necessary). Use the simple web page tools to generate and self-manage your Geolocating Audio Tour content, to highlight and identify and interpret in your own words and style your venue's points of interest.
Your Geolocating Audio Tour content updates are immediately shared with the visitor via any browser on their GPS and Internet-enabled smartphone or tablet (no app to download). Your content is custom-delivered to follow and match any route chosen by the visitor as they explore, gain familiarity and confidence, and more deeply appreciate the nearby reality that surrounds them.
Creating and evolving your Geolocating Audio Tour content can energize your community and bolster collaboration among staff, volunteers and visitors including all those who might fund, oversee, source, prepare, maintain, and partake of your educational content. You can harness your guide staff's creative power and expertise by repurposing their already-developed signage, brochures and website.
