The mobile tour will be accessed by using he camera embedded in most cellphones to scan small printed QR codes displayed around the harbor. Scanning the QR codes will automatically bring up web pages and maps onto cell phone screens. The GPS sensor in most cellphones will allow visitors to orient themselves to historically significant places on a map of the downtown area, and learn about people and events relevant to that location.
Technology for the tour is provided by Guide By Cell, which has previously hosted KMM's audio oral history our accompanying its "Faces of the Kodiak King Crab Fishery" exhibit. Tour formatting and design are provided by Exhibit AK of Juenau, Alaska.
