Forbairt Feirste, the Gaeltacht Quarter based Irish Language Development Agency, were looking for an innovative idea to help boost tourism in West Belfast. The solution needed to support the installation of 25 heritage plaques while make the most of Irish language, culture and heritage. We developed a native iOS and Android application which utilised Augmented Reality to bring the plaques to life, each one appearing as a floating pin on a real world view in front of the user. Native maps were used to show the location of each plaque along Falls Road and beyond. Historical images, videos and audio files were uncovered to display the rich history of West Belfast like never before.
