Mawson’s Huts Interactive Guide on iPhone


An experimental iPhone app for heritage visualisation.

A simple two-digit navigation system is demonstrated for interactive realtime walkthrough of Mawson’s Huts, Antarctica, using the Unity game engine.

Users can explore the interior and exterior of Mawson’s Huts and a variety of fully-spherical high-resolution photographic panoramas documenting the site. An audio soundtrack accompanies the visualisation as it is explored.

This demo application was available through the Apple iTunes store – but is currently withdrawn for further development for the iPad platform.
