Abstract

The California Academy of Sciences, located in San Francisco, CA in Golden Gate Park, launched its first iPhone app, the Golden Gate Park Field Guide, to extend the reach of our museum as well as inspire people to explore their surroundings. The app highlights the park’s common wildlife, popular attractions, and hidden gems. It also invites users to actively engage with the park and to record and share their experiences. Key features include an ever-growing field guide to five taxa, a map of attractions, adventures to undertake and species sightings.  In house partners, out of of house partners, designers, developers and content providers aligned together to achieve this easily expandable (via Drupal) and user configurable app!
