Newport’s famous Cliff Walk is now smart-phone friendly. The tourist attraction has added 16 trail markers with quick response codes. Visitors can get historic and geological information with a quick smartphone scan.
Salve Regina University Professor Jon Marcoux worked with students to create the app.
“This is a great example of something that was doable for an undergraduate, and they did it, but hopefully it will have a big payoff for folks who are visiting.”
Marcoux said using technology increases the breadth of information available to tourists.
