New App for the Hohe Tauern National Park

With the new mobile app “Peak.NPHT” by Salzburg Research there is no need for questions like “Is this the Tauernkogel or Tauernkögele?” Details about  approx. 3,000 mountain peaks in the National Park and the surrounding area (to reach Innsbruck, Salzburg and Klagenfurt) are available on the mobile phone. Just one look through the built-in phone camera and everyone knows about the name, height, distance and longitude and latitude of the summit.

With augmented Reality the app Peak.NPHT links the digital world with the real mountains. For some peaks there is a more detailed description available for climbing. In addition, the application provides names and heights of all cabins / snack stations in the National Park. An offline digital map supports walkers at any time in the planning of routes.

Peak.NPHT is available for free in German and English in the iPhone App Store  as well as in the Android Market.
