Stow Maries to launch augmented reality app


Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome is about to launch its latest development. It has been secretly working with cutting-edge technology company CGEye Ltd for the last six months and now has plans to unveil an Augmented Reality app.

The app –downloadable through Google Play or the App store – is ready to use now and aims to enrich a visitor’s experience on the site.

Users of the app can experience a Zeppelin flying over the aerodrome, walk inside a working hangar and even see a table-top version of the whole site in its heyday – all through their own Smart phone or Smart device.

The app includes onscreen instructions as you enter each section. New features will be added as time goes on.

Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome’s Chief Executive, Ian Flint said: “Firstly I would like to thank the team at CGEye Ltd for creating such a great tool for the aerodrome. For a heritage site it is still important to be at the forefront of new technology opportunities and I believe the site will really benefit by having this extra offering for visitors to experience.”

Production Manager, Paul Smith of CGEye Ltd added: “We’re proud and excited to be working on this project for such an important heritage site. By using this app visitors to the aerodrome will be able to enjoy a glimpse into the past in a totally unique way, and this is a perfect example of history and new technology working together to add an extra dimension to the visitor experience.”
