Jump to: navigation, search
 CityQuest allows cultural organisations to easily create a quest online, and publish it to a mobile app. 
 Send your visitors around the city to discover items from your collection and the locations they are connected to. 
 Based on hints and media you track down an item, scan the QR code on its location and learn the (hi)story behind it.

Introduction to the training materials

The training materials are composed of three sections:

  • CityQuest getting started: a simple overview of things to keep in mind before creating a CityQuest.
  • CityQuest manual pages: text and screenshots on how to work with the various CityQuest components.
  • CityQuest source code: find out where to get the source code under MIT license.
