Traverse, sharing cultural heritage

Traverse is a mobile application allowing personalized and live discovery of the Franco-Swiss cultural heritage.
From autumn 2017, it will accompany you in the interpretation of a landscape, the visit of a monument, the tasting of a local product, and much more.

Using a collection of images and sounds mostly taken from the archives of the project's public partners, linked together by themes and original narrative proposals (in the form of playlists), Traverse contributors highlight the history of the territory.

The editorial application (Web)

The editorial application offers cultural heritage experts a way to inform, increase and share their knowledge intuitively. The objective data of the heritage are enhanced by the experience and personal vision of the experts. The idea is to attract the general public to a transversal discovery of the heritage. Each record contains taxonomies, but is also linked to others via strong links.
From these cards, it is possible to create playlists (via the editorial application as well as on mobile applications). These playlists are then available to everyone and add a new dimension in the discovery of the cultural heritage.

Mobile applications (Android & iOS)

Mobile applications (design by 8bitstudio) are under development. Below are some screenshots of the current status of the Android app. They allow visitors to benefit from expert knowledge. A discovery mode will offer the user personalized suggestions according to his position as well as his last visits. The exploring mode allows users to "walk around" virtually while filtering entries by topics, types, locations, keywords, and categories. They can also save their search filters and create their own playlists.

Applications will be available to the general public in the fall of 2017.
