General information

Europeana Beacon combine the power of the Europeana.eu Open Data with the latest cutting edge technology of iBeacons.

Users can walk around the city and have the phone alert them when something worthwhile is nearby, allowing people to discover new places in a new way. Users can read or listen comprehensive guides about each landmark they discover, while watching pictures and videos. Engage other people in a scavenger hunt looking for the next clue, or follow the custom paths curators have tailored for them.

As a curator you can have all kind of statistics about how and often each landmark is visited.

Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign

PROXIMITY DRIVEN
Walk close to a Beacon and let the App attract your attention to the landmark, opera or monument. Discover story and mementos of the monument your facing. Engage in a post tour quiz about the things you've actually visited. Embark in a scavenger hunt around the city solving riddles and puzzles.

iBeacon TECHNOLOGY
iBeacon is an exciting technology enabling new location awareness possibilities for apps. Leveraging Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a device with iBeacon technology can be used to establish a region around an object. This allows the App to determine when it has entered or left the region, along with an estimation of proximity to a beacon.

EDUCATIONAL
Discover story and mementos of the monument your facing with images, videos and audio from Europeana vast database. Engage in a post tour quiz about the things you've actually visited. Embark in a scavenger hunt around the city solving riddles and puzzles.

GAMIFICATION & SOCIAL SHARING
Solve riddles and puzzles with clues that lead to monuments around the city. Challenge your friends to scavenger hunts across the place! Test your knowledge with quizzes about what you've actually visited. The same old city in a complete new way!

LOCAL INFORMATION
Display informations about the whereabout or the place. Informations can be provided by museums, local tourist bureau, exhibition spaces, etc. Enrich the visit with curious facts or trivia.

VISITS ANALYTICS
For the first time museum curators and local tourist bureau can have real time insights about what people visits and see. Using iBeacons data the App can track what’s been seen and what's not attracting attention at all.

Why this is important

As active tourists ourselves we'd like to visit a new place and discover all the hidden treasures, maybe ones that even locals are not aware about. What's better than the smartphone we always have with ourselves, that discretely warn us about something we could have missed, or the secret hallway just around the corner?

Why stop there? We think we could have more fun if we could engage in some social games around the city, playing an online scavenger hunt against other people like us, or help children learn historical facts while having fun!

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

Have the ability to build the complete platform and possibly find some local authorities that will be an active part of the project, by being available from day one.
