I am creating a Map Tour and rather than it being just on the heritage society's web site I'd like it to be a mobile app. Can someone point me to any projects, readings, software  that describe how to use xy coordinates in some way to automatically identify a location as a person walks past it  ( eg a heritage building ) so that that particular… (Show more)
