Chamonix Itinerio App Project

Chamonix Itinerio App Project

The Mission

The Chamonix Itinerio App project started as a joint initiative between the four municipalities of the Community of Communes of the Chamonix Valley. They were looking for a way to promote eco-tourism in the valley, segmenting activities by season, while also encouraging increased mobility and better stakeholder communication. More than 2.5 million people visit Chamonix Valley .every year. The main challenge of the project would be to design a solution which would be available to everyone.

The Solution

The solution proposed by MyOrpheo offered a unique blend of technology:

  • •Downloadable apps compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
  • •Android based video tour guide dedicated for outdoor exploration; available for rent at 5 distribution points.
  • •Multi-touch tables available at the various visitor centers.

The application provides GPS guided tours (auto-triggering) of the cultural and natural environment of the valley, while also facilitating communication between consumers, professional and scientific stakeholders in the area. The smartphone mobile app embeds emerging technology such as augmented reality. For example, by facing an iOS or Android device towards the mountains, the augmented reality feature allows you to view the name and height of each mountain peak.

The Results

With over 160 devices for rental and the option for free download on iOS and Android, Itinerio allows visitors to better explore and appreciate the Chamonix valley.
