NEW: The “Photosphere Memorial Portal”, in the Viewing Platform & Reflecting Pool Area (3), is an evolving feature that will transport users to other key WWI Memorial locations. The first example is the American Cemetery at Flanders, in Belgium.
NEW: We have transformed the WWI Memorial Model area (0) with a new feature ideal for classroom use. As you invoke the model, you see a category list that includes: Sculptures, Inscriptions, and Features. Selecting a category accesses items for that category. When an item is selected, a guide arrow appears in the model. Search for it and ‘walk over’ to explore it. Additional information, including the full text for all inscriptions, is included. With this you can create “search” assignments for students and read WWI information inscribed into the Memorial.
UPDATE: In the Woodrow Wilson area (5), you can now select the full screen button to view the videos looking down (you no longer need to hold up your device up to look at the AR screen). It also makes the video full screen for easier viewing.
UPDATE: For Virtual Remembrances in the Peace Fountain area (6), we have expanded the filtering system to now include over 750 Stories of Service. You can submit your OWN ancestors Story of Service by looking under the NEWS thumb button.
