Mobile app by Ryerson researchers uncovers the architecture of Toronto

A collaboration between the Department of Architectural Science and the Library and Archives at Ryerson University, Toronto has resulted in a new app that aims to uncover the architectural landmarks of the city.

This app goes beyond a normal map or directory. Using geo-location data, users can use the free interactive mobile app to find the closest buildings. From there, they are able to embark on an architectural tour, learning about the history of the buildings through hi-res images, floor plans and more. "Not only do we get to see the building, by using augmented reality to geo-locate us we can also see historically what has been on that site," said Ryerson University Professor, Vincent Hui.
