Situate Applications

Visitor Guides, Walking Trails, Events, Audio Guides - here are some ways in which Situate can be used.

Visitor Guide Apps

Situate can be used to create a visitor guide app. This could be used in museums, galleries, stately homes, parks, town centres, and much more.

You can provide information in the app that helps the user to get more from their visit. That may be information to explain exhibits or exhibition themes, or to provide the unusual little insights that the visitor might receive if being accompanied by a tour guide.

Location triggering (using iBeacons or GPS) can be used to show visitors the content that is relevant to wherever they are in your venue.

Maps and floor plans can be used to help visitors orientate themselves around your venue.

Walking Trail Apps

Situate can be used to create walking trail apps that will work regardless of whether or not there is an internet connection available. Walking routes and interactive markers can be shown on maps, and content can be triggered automatically at each stop as the user follows the trail.
Examples of walking trails we have developed include the ‘Sheffield Lives’ walking trail developed with the University of Sheffield, and the King Richard III walking trail in Leicester.

Event Apps

Situate is great for using for events. You can include floor plans and maps to help orientate visitors. Content can be kept fully up to date with the online Admin Tool, and by using the publishing range feature of Situate you can specify when content can be seen by users in the app.

Because Situate uses iBeacons and GPS it can be used for multi-site events as well as events taking place in a single location.

Automatic location triggering can be used to help tell visitors what is happening as they move around the event. For example, you could automatically show an agenda of speakers in a particular room, or a list of trade exhibitors.
Sheffield Design Week

Sheffield Design Week

Sheffield Design Week is a week-long event involving over 20 venues in and around Sheffield. We used GPS for the location triggering.

Venturefest Yorkshire

Venturefest Yorkshire

We used iBeacons across 5 floors and multiple rooms at York racecourse for an app for the Venturefest Yorkshire innovation exhibition.

Audio Guide Apps

Situate can be used to create the functionality of hand-held audio guides. Because content is downloaded to the device, audio playback is immediate and without glitches. Situate’s ‘audio bar’ feature allows the user to continue browsing through the app whilst listening to an audio track.
Audio can be linked to a location hot-spot and set to play automatically when the visitor comes within range. As well as being a useful feature for audio guides this can also be used to assist visually-impaired users by providing wayfinding information.
