Scotland Introduces AR App Via Google

A ground breaking new application (app) that invites the world to step into Scotland has been created in close collaboration with Google as part of the Scotland Is Now global campaign.

The augmented reality (AR) app built with ARCore gives users across the globe the chance to experience the country’s rich landscapes and attractions through their mobile phones.

The innovative technology was led by VisitScotland, in partnership with Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise and Universities Scotland.

The app was made by Edinburgh-based creative marketing agency Whitespace in collaboration with Scotland Is Now partners over 10 weeks. Google approached Whitespace and VisitScotland after spotting a portal technique demo on Twitter.

It has been released on Google Playstore and Apple iOS platform.
