Connecting with the landscape and nature of the Commonwealth

It all started as a question from one of Alberta's favourite bank CEOs, "Could we build an app that would let people walk Edmonton's trails while experiencing stories from the area?" The conversation that followed resulted in a beautifully realized project for the Lieutenant Governor in conjunction with the Crown (yes, the actual Crown).  Since then, Edmonton's Commonwealth Walkway app has been providing great experiences in the river valley and catching the attention of destinations.

The Commonwealth Walkway Trust came to us to design and develop a mobile storytelling application to accompany their newest Commonwealth Walk in Edmonton, Alberta. The app needed to accommodate multiple story lines, a variety of media and content types, 30 medallions located on a 10 kilometre loop throughout the Edmonton River Valley, integrate mapping functionality, as well adapt information presentation based on the app users location.

Bringing the world to Edmonton's River Valley

The audience for this project was not only Edmonton citizens, but any visitor to Edmonton wanting to learn more about the city's rich and vibrant history. We decided to develop the app so it was not dependant on the user's presence on the physical Walkway, but could be used from devices in their home, classroom, or across the world.

Key Considerations

The app required Google Map API integration in order to plot the medallions along the Walkway and illustrate a clear path of travel to the user. In order to identify users location along the path and dynamically update app content based on this, we also needed to implement location tracking technology.

As the Edmonton River Valley is accessible by many entrances, we chose to structure the app to allow for user exploration and limit confusion if the user does not enter at the identified Walkway end points.

Finally, the Application content will constantly be added to as Edmontons history evolves and new stories are created.
