Outside Bologna is another example of how an application can contain much more than some basic pieces of information: even the full descriptions of not only one town, but as many as five . Outside Bologna was produced by an association of city councils that includes Sasso Marconi, Casalecchio di Reno, Vergato, Zola Predosa e Crespellano. This partnership gave birth to a special application which is equipped with five macro categories, one for each city council. It is as if we had five applications in one only! This application is available in four different languages.

 

Visit Forlì

iPhone App | Android App | Web App

Visit Forlì, which was built for the Information technology office of the city council of Forlì, utilizes some images and maps to exemplarily describe the town in a video available inside the application and linked to the You Tube channel of the town. This gives evidence of how it is possible to link whichever type of external contents in an application. Like most of the applications we show in this section, Visit Forlì has an update button which users can utilize to update the contents of the application, local weather forecasts, and many evocative images.

This application was built for the local tourism organization Pro Loco of Cavour. It is a very effective tool to promote the territory and the events and the activities organized by tourism organization of Cavour, as well as a true and real travel guide of the town of Cavour.

Sentieri per Montalcino

iPhone App | Android App | Web App

The main feature of the Map2App system is geo-referencing, which means the localization on a map of a single place or point of interest, or even multiple points of interest, as in case of itineraries. The application “Sentieri di Montalcino” is a perfect example of geo-referencing, as it is rich in itineraries. Many stops of the itineraries are illustrated with images and videos, but some audio guides could be also added, if it is needed. In fact, every application can be customized according to one’s own special needs.In this section we have listed some examples of application concerning naturalistic areas. The main feature of these applications is that they cover huge areas, and in most cases they offer some naturalistic itineraries that users can follow step by step.
