Development of the Digital Trails app has reached an exciting stage – watch out for more announcements soon!
In the meantime we have created a map of the site with QR codes at points of particular interest. Take a copy of the map and a smartphone to navigate your way around the site. Download the White Rock Digital Trails QR codes map.
When we have sorted out Scheduled Monument Consent with CADW there will be discreet permanent QR posts on the site.
Next Stage Development
The app is now available for beta testing.
If you would like to play with the app, including building your own walks, please contact email@example.com.
We will arrange a training session. We have some android tablets available for loan.
The White Rock project is creating self-guided digital trails in Swansea’s former industrial areas of White Rock and Hafod.
The Swansea Branch of the Historical Association’s project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund under the AHRC’s Connected Communities project.
The smartphone app uses location services to direct the visitor to points of interest. When the app senses it has arrived it presents information in a variety of formats – words, pictures, sound, and video.
Additional features of the app will enable the visitor to participate in the White Rock community with feedback and contributions.
The White Rock app is database driven. It is adaptable to any historical or other site, to walks, and as an urban guide. QR codes, traditional leaflets and interpretation supplement the app.
