Traverse, sharing cultural heritage

Traverse is a mobile application allowing personalized and live discovery of the Franco-Swiss cultural heritage.
From autumn 2017, it 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.

IOS and Android mobile app update

Super article on Ulrich Fischer's Blog describing the new updates we have made on the Traverse application.

To summarize, in mid-May, the city of Geneva will have hundreds of posters indicating a QRcode to be scanned as part of the project "Racontes-moi Genève". We have adapted the application to fully meet the needs of this cultural project.

...« Racontes-moi Genève », l’intitulé et la promesse de ce projet, va donner accès via des QRcodes à des récits du lieu, en ramification avec d’autres récits, personnages ou objets, ailleurs dans la ville…
En scannant un QRcode à partir d’un sticker posé dans l’espace urbain, chaque histoire spécifique est le point de départ d’une expérience de voyage virtuel: ce qui est raconté sur le lieu où nous sommes fait partie d’un ensemble plus large, relié par association d’idées et mis en relation par des thématiques communes....

The new features are, an icon to scan a QRcode that will take you directly to the linked file / playlist as well as a simplified navigation among the hundreds of cultural cards via a click on the Tags.

Download the app, let yourself go and above all be ready to scan the city from mid-May 2019 onwards !!!

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.
