National Air and Space Museum: CoPilot

The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum utilized the TAP CMS and the TAP Web App to provide visitors with access to multimedia tours at the Udar-Hazy Center. The app contains 100 objects broken down into 20 themes for discoverability. Additionaly, key codes are displayed in the building to allow users to quickly find the stop they are standing in front of. Audio was added to the stop groups to give users a more imersive experience.
