Augmented Reality Pilot Project, Camp Lawton

Project Description: 

The Historic Preservation Division developed a pilot augmented reality (AR) interpretive program focusing on Camp Lawton, a Confederate POW camp discovered at Magnolia Springs State Park. HPD created a digital experience for park visitors. While visiting the Camp Lawton Museum, visitors can now link codes with their own tablet or smart phone, and discover additional information about the Camp Lawton site. This AR information includes interactive tables, and links to primary and secondary sources of archaeological information. These resources allow visitors to tailor their experience to focus on subjects of personal interest. Visitors may also view a virtual 3D reconstruction of the corner of Camp Lawton’s prison stockade, as it would have been situated in today's landscape.
