Taking Culture and Hertiage Engagement on Location



HistoryLens allows visitors to easily explore an area, helping them to discover local attractions and landmarks using interactive maps or intuitive augmented reality navigation. Augmented reality is a fun and new way to explore a locality – seeing what is nearby and where to go next without needing a map or knowing how to read one.

Additionally, a visitor may decide to follow a self-guided tour, with detailed instructions and maps’, exploring a historical, ecological or cultural trail has never been easier.



HistoryLens brings together multi-dimensional data and media content in a single solution, creating a personal, interactive guide in your pocket.

These guides and stories are told in new ways, using not only textual content, but also images, audio and video. Additionally, real-world 3D models for augmented reality display allow you to interact and explore with artefacts, as if they are actually there in front of you; turning the visitor journey into a multi-sensory experience as well as a destination.



Mobile applications allow for greater accessibility, exploration and connectivity with culture and heritage sites and tourist information. Available in 95% of smartphones, HistoryLens helps to engage with the growing digital demographic by displaying relevant content on their mobile device.

With video, audio, 3D modelling and imagery readily available, information apps are becoming a popular addition to the in-museum visit, creating a trusted, intimate experience.


HistoryLens uses GPS to automatically alert you to when you near an interpretation hotspot. Unlike conventional follow-the-trail guides, the freedom to explore brings self-discovery such as passing an unusual landmark and hearing a story from its history – your personal guide in your pocket.

GPS hotspots can instigate a story or launch an image or video - all without needing to implement interpretation boards or rely on users understanding how to scan a QR code.
