Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

Template for the National Park Service

During our recent discussions with John Tobiason, New and Social Media coordinator for the National Park Service, we talked about developing a consistent look across the agency's apps, based on the National Mall and Memorial Parks app, already being used as a way-finding tool in Washington, D.C.

Some examples of this look include:

The button

The toolbox screen

And the menu bars screen:

Even though our niche is interpretation, rather than way-finding or expositional information sharing, the National Mall app has a solid structure upon which to base the architecture of the Fort Vancouver Mobile app. So during our upcoming redesign for the 1.0 public release of Fort Vancouver Mobile, we will be working closely with John and the National Park Service to meet basic design and accessibility standards.
