BBC South Today - video of launch of mobile QR NFC and AR signs on the South Downs

ITiC works with organisations to implement the effective use of mobile scan technologies like QR codes, NFC Tags and Augmented Reality, that help users by offering links to interesting online and text information.

QR codes are black and white square codes often seen on TV, on posters and in magazines. QR codes, together with newer NFC tags and AR, now appear increasingly at UK heritage sites. By scanning QR codes or NFC Tags on a mobile, or using AR, visitors get a better appreciation of our heritage sites, historic buildings and culture > South Downs Trail

Together with mobile apps and GPS mapping, mobile interpretation can help people get the most out of their heritage property or site visit. The cost of introducing mobile interpretation is also relatively low and any negative visual impact is minimised, for example by using existing waypost markers.

What sort of information can QR codes, NFC Tags or Augmented Reality link to?           

QR codes and NFC Tags can link to website pages, mobile apps, text, pictures, audio, video, games, or any web link. Augmented Reality uses a mobile's camera or GPS to offer the ability to scan a location or picture and provide a 'virtual view' of points of interest or facilities all around a location.
