Queens Botanical Garden is a large space, but they do not define the different sections of the garden and plants with signage. The Garden also has a confusing layout and viewers end up repeating the same sections.
Queens Botanical Garden will offer their app as a way to guide users through their garden. By using AR technology, users will be able to explore the garden with ease and less confusion.
By using AR technology, users can scan a plant to identify it.
Users will be able to read more about the plant. There will be general information about plant size, color, and its uses.
Users will answer questions that will evaluate if the plant is compatible with their lifestyle.
The Queens Botanical Garden app can create a path based on the duration they want to spend at the garden, or different categories to guide users around.
How to cater to most age ranges
When I was exploring the garden for research, I realized there isn't a specific age range that visits the garden. I wanted to create something that would be useful for all age ranges.
In this app, I used the problems that I faced at the garden as a starting point. I decided that my problems aren't the major problems and focused more on the research versus what I thought was necessary in the app.
