The group met on a sunny afternoon at Stewart Park. Along with us was our junior research assistant who slept through the whole thing. We planned out our informative QR route through the park with a fascinating guide talk from Anne Thomas of the Friends of Stewart Park. Our next task is to return to our base at Acklam Library and start to digitise the QR guided walk. (see below for an explanation of QR Codes.
A QR code is a type of barcode invented in 1994 by the Japanese automotive company Denso Wave. QR stands for “Quick Response (Code)”. People have begun to recognise these and instinctively know to scan them with their smartphone. Below is a QR created by Leonard Reddy of the research group. Scanning it will guide you to some information about the park. We plan to place these around the park as a kind of digital guided tour.
