In a country, rich in history and heritage, monuments and other historical sites don’t receive the attention, sanctity and care that they deserve.By deploying a multilingual audio-visual tool, inclusive of features such as credible content, 360 degree digital tour and virtual interactivity; the DigiTour application wants to address gaps in the tourism-heritage industry such as scarcity of expert information and lack of awareness and responsibility amongst locals and limited availability of historical content. Compatible with VR technology, the application is an educational tool and is also entertaining and engaging platform.The application is both mobile and browser-based. It has already been deployed in Hampi, and has seen over a thousand downloads since its launch in January 2018.
