A new free i Phone application called Louth Hidden History was recently developped by Archer, heritage planning and archaeology consultants based in Balbriggan (Co. Dublin).
The App aims to guide users around hidden or hard to find historic sites in County Louth using Search by Map and Search by Town functionalities. The Search by Map is based on Google Maps background showing twelve site locations while the Search by Town offers a simple list of towns and monuments links.
The application is simple, easy to use and the information is well delivered through videos on each historic site.
Again GIS is the best tool to work when it comes to site locations! In this case the Google Maps background is the perfect case as reprojecting monuments from TM75/Irish Grid (EPSG 29903) to the Google Mercator projection (EPSG 900913) will help on checking up site coordinates.
To download the application, type in Louth on your iTunes App Search and enjoy it!
