Software company DaH! developed a Junaio channel with La Copa for the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park in Catalonia. The channel uses geo-location to show relevant points of interest such as information points, ponds, observation points, sight views, and more. Possibly the most incredible feature for the channel is its ability to help visitors spot locations where they can find rare animals that might otherwise be difficult to find using traditional Park guides.
Every point of interest contains relevant information comprised of images, video and/or text that the user can browse through.
The channel serves as a way for park visitors to get more information about the park and the range of wildlife that inhabit the area. Panels have been installed on pathways throughout the park with QR codes that link visitors to download instructions and the channel’s address.
For more information be sure to check out DaH!’s website, the channel’s website, and the video below. Don’t forget to try the channel with the QR code at the bottom of the article!

This past January, USC Annenberg Professor Robert Hernandez presented his students’ work at the Los Angeles Public Library. The class, titled Augmented Reality and Journalism, created a Junaio channel to deepen the experience at the Los Angeles Public Library. Thanks to markerless tracking, the class could augment various parts of the library without disturbing public works. Check out their results through the video below or visit the class’s website.
Robert Hernandez will be speaking at the Augmented World Expo next week in a panel titled “The 3 ‘P’s of the Future Augmented World – Predictions, Privacy, Pervasiveness” where he, Pete Wassell, Cecilia Abadie, Hugo Ortega, and Brian Wassom will be discussing the impact of augmented reality on society. As professor of one of the first classes to use augmented reality for journalism, expect Hernandez and crew to be very informative on the topic. We’re looking forward to it!
