What if you could walk through Calvary Cemetery anytime you wanted to* and identify the interesting people buried there? (*During visitor hours in person or 24/7 through the internet.)
For the last two years, Calvary has been developing a self guided tour of notable sites throughout the cemetery using location signs equipped with QR codes to lead visitors to more information about each site. The initial test of the signs durability and the function of the QR code technology is now complete and found to be successful.
Phase One includes 40 sites, which are published on a tour map available at the cemetery office. Phase Two of the tour project has begun, with the identification of 80 more sites to be included in the tour, with ongoing additions. The map will be updated when new sites are added.
The tour sites include proprietary Flarecode technology, which allows visitors to give feedback through their smart phone, tablet or other internet access. The process is meant to be interactive, to allow the body of information to be updated, corrected or revisited for factual accuracy and to assess visitor interests and engagement.
