We trust the Wikitude SDK to power one of our most popular in-app features; Viewport. Through the use of augmented reality, it allows our users to better understand their surroundings while exploring National Parks.
Kerry Gallivan | CEO/CO-Founder

Chimani’s apps bring the best aspects of travel guidebooks to mobile platforms, combining professionally researched and written park descriptions with comprehensive destination information; GPS navigation to enhance touring by car, bike, or foot; Wikitude augmented reality views highlighting key points of interest; and a platform that remains fully functional with or without a wifi or data signal — a key consideration when visiting remote parks where cellular service is spotty or nonexistent. Each app features a broad range of information and resources for travelers, including details from hiking trails and key attractions to locations of restrooms and parking, interactive maps, photo galleries, event listings and park news updates, trip-planning tools, and a gaming component that allows you to earn points for each park you visit.

In addition to the keystone National Parks app, which includes detailed information on all 400+ units of the U.S. National Park Service, Chimani has also developed stand-alone guides that focus on the 15 most-visited National Parks, including Acadia, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone.
