navigational app

The American Museum of Natural History, through their Explorer app, are  regarded as being  among the original pacesetters in enhancing awareness of  the use of  GPS location technology in an  indoor setting,  through providing  in-depth navigation capabilities  within the largest of buildings.

With the  Museum’s Explorer 2.0 version, currently in an  advanced stage of development,  projections are that its increased capability will be able to provide a  dramatically re-imagined on and off-site experiential guide to the museum.

The new app is being designed and produced in order to provide  museum visitors with a powerful  tool that will enable them  to experience facets of the museum in novel ways including the ability to  map out personalized tours, capturing and sharing their favorite exhibits, objects, and the many  concepts of the museum.

The updated  version will also be capable of providing crucial visitor amenities, among them ticket reservations, mapping, and exhibit information.

Futter, President of the American Museum of Natural History was quick to applaud Bloomberg Philanthropies‘ for their  extraordinary support in helping to provide cutting edge  technology that will  build bridges between the public and cultural institutions, ” “We are thrilled to build on the Explorer app and use the latest technology to empower visitors to create a unique experience that integrates the physical and digital aspects of visiting and enjoying the Museum.” Ms. Futter summed up.
