  1. Our project assigment:

    Title (What is this App):
    A personal tour guide to Panorama of the City of New York at Flushing Meadow Park, Queens, New York.

    Appearance (How this App look like):
    The ipg file of Tom standing on the Panorama. (This icon can be changed)

    Functions (What can be done):
    The App:
    1. Introduce the Panorama from the historical point and what it is about. See:
    2. Location map and travel by different transportation to the place. See:
    3. On-site tour guide by starting an initial set-up (gathering statistic of user, such as, preferred language, age, sex, where is from) and at each section of the tour is activated by QR code
    4. The App displays the map of the section which is activated by the QR code and the user can perform interactive action – Point a building/area and Click, to learn the NYC five boroughs.
    5. At the end of tour, the Treasure Hunt game asks the user to identify 6 randomly selected landmarks in NYC. The reward for the highest score will be recorded by date of the user’s name, where’s from, and comment as a permanent record in the App. All participates of the Treasure Hunt game will be able to print out something related to the Panorama as Souvenir.
    6. When exit the App, the Database has collected the following statistic data:
    User name, Language, Sex, Tourist/NYC Resident, Time log-on, Time exit, and Date
    The Time log-on and exit will tell the duration of time and the peak of the day of using the App

    Motivation (Why use this App):
    For children this App is easy access and fun to go through it and for adult visitors this App provides educational and pleasure experience – knowledge is Power

  2. We have seen the buildings, bridges and rivers. We have not seen the cultural spirit behind those tangible things.

    What is this: this is a spiritual App
    What does it look like? We will use a map, find reference images online.
    How does it work? We will use ppt. images , chart etc.

    To reach out to the visitors from all over the world to better understand the history and geography of Flushing, Queens where the Queens Museum is located.
    To understand the background of each ethnic group to appreciate the differences and to live in harmony.
