Octane project aims to enhance visitor’s experience by developing and diffusing a mobile application that allows the visitor to walk around the city as if it was an open museum. The visitors will have the opportunity to discover cultural and natural sites that match their interests, to learn about the city’s architecture, culture and history, as well as the daily routine of the habitants.
The key characteristic of the mobile application is the connection between visitor’s navigation and visual contact with the point of interests and information provision.

The application will incorporate on the city map all points of interests that had been selected by local authorities as most interesting cultural and natural sites.
