Digital trail guides


What is a Digital Trail Guide?
A DTG is a handheld touch screen computer that acts as a personal audio-visual guide to the Staple Fitzpaine Herepath Trail. You can explore the landscape surrounding the the trail in a new way by listening to audio stories and watching animations about the history of the area. There are also images to help identify trees, plants and animals, and GPS technology to track your location along the trail.

There are 10 special GPS 'hotspots' positioned long the trail - as you walk into each of these special areas a digital animation and audio story will automatically play on the handset.
