The Q3 Ranger system is a sophisticated and advanced GPS software system. When installed
on standard, GPS-enabled portable computers, it creates bespoke Q3 Ranger devices.
Q3 Ranger devices are custom programmed for use in specific areas.
Q3 Rangers can direct people along outdoor trails and routes with turn by turn audio
and visual directions. These directions can be seamlessly blended with multimedia
information automatically presented at pre-set points of interest. Alternatively,
users can roam an area at will, being automatically alerted to the points of interest.
This extremely flexible, modular system also enables users to explore supplementary
information stored on their Q3 Ranger at any time or place during an outdoor tour.
Q3 Rangers are suitable for a wide range of outdoor tourism and recreation applications.
They are a revolutionary, 21st Century interpretation tool for the outdoors, providing
tourists with unique, personal experiences at their own pace.
Being guided by a Q3 Ranger mimics the experience of being shown around by a local
friend: they know exactly where to go, can point out interesting features along the
way and tell fascinating anecdotes related to particular places.
Users can be presented with otherwise hidden views, local stories, heritage or seasonal
highlights relevant to particular locations: live webcam images of the inside of
those nests on the cliffs; magnified images of small creatures or objects; pictures
and movies bringing historical events or different seasons to life.
The Q3 Ranger system can be installed on a range of devices to suit different user
needs. For example, tablets are ideal for educational groups, while smaller devices
cater for individual or family use.
Contentcan include any combination of video, images, movies, animations, text, maps
and audio, tailored to a particular outdoor site and user group(s).
Q3 Rangers have been extensively tested and proved with user groups of all ages and
abilities. They are simple and intuitive to use.
