Visitors to Monaco will have at their fingertips a virtual tourist guide thanks to the launch of a new app, developed in the Principality. The technology will allow users to experience 3D models of some of Monaco’s most famous landmarks, as well as a host of other useful features.
The app, called CardMap, was created from a collaboration between Monaco’s Tourist and Convention Authority and the company K-Rma tech.
Available for Android and iOS, CardMap offers users an augmented reality view of their destination. By scanning a flyer that can be found in a variety of strategic locations or the map of Monaco, visitors can learn more about the country’s different tourist attractions through a 3D model of the location, an audio guide, photos and videos, making their visit more dynamic and interactive.
The Princess Grace Rose Garden, Fontvieille Park, the Japanese Garden, the Casino, the Cathedral, the Oceanographic Museum and the Prince’s Palace are already available on the app, and other locations will be added soon including the Exotic Garden, the Observatory Cave and the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit.
Over the coming weeks, users will also be able to learn more about the Changing of the Guard.
K-Rma tech Sarl was founded in Monaco in 2017 and brings together professionals working in new technology and finance. In addition to creating CardMap, the company is also developing innovative solutions in the fields of tourism, music, sport and medicine.
