A brand new app. the 160 year old Mount Royal Cemetery into the digital age!
A new free Mobile App designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices is a great way to experience the nature and history of Mount Royal Cemetery, a National Historic Site founded in 1852.
This App offers you a pocket sized tour guide to visit the property at your own pace. Thanks to geolocation (GPS), as you wander in the Cemetery, you will be notified each time you go by one of the 70 points of interest such as famous people’s monuments and rare trees. An interactive map will help you locate the interesting sites while historical information, written and audio, as well as many photographs will appear on your screen.
The application can also be used with non-GPS enabled devices or off-site; you can browse the list of points of interest from any location. The application is completely self-contained and once it is downloaded, no data connection is needed to tour the Cemetery.
This new App entitled “Mount Royal Cemetery Geoguide” is available on the App Store. It is one of the numerous projects of the organization of the Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery which also offers numerous activities such as guided tours on history, trees and birds.
