Winona State University

Winona State has partnered with the Winona County Historical Society (WCHS) and Winona360.org to produce a mobile walking tour website. This project is intended to interface with a new exhibit being planned at the WCHS: “Identities in Brick & Stone”, highlighting several significant buildings in downtown Winona, MN. The mobile website utilizes new features in HTML5 (geolocation), to guide users on a walking tour of these locations. This has primarily been a student developed project that has been run with staff (me) and faculty oversight. We are using TAP to organize and present the content about these buildings to the user. I’ve attached several screenshots of the application that will show the workflow of the site.
