This two-stage project represents a contemporary methodology in elevating the profile of the Gippsland Lakes both nationally and internationally.
It aims to raise awareness of the stunning ecology found within. LakesApp encourages exploration and engagement with the Lakes and all they offer, i.e. expanding users curiosity such that they wish to be experiencing them at first hand.
The LakesApp aims to take what would otherwise be a flat screen, static image and transport users to a state of (almost) being there with a field naturalist, historian, etc. at their side. This will be achieved using high-end digital innovations like peel-away scale maps, scrollable panoramas and animation. And with users curiosity aroused, enticing them to visit the experience that began on the tablet.
