French Quarter Tours

The French Quarter Tours interactive map exhibit is a partnership between Ideum and The Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC). The experience lets THNOC visitors engage with a detailed multi-user application running on an 86” Ideum Colossus touch table. Starting with the highly detailed 3D map at the heart of the exhibit, users can select dozens of highlighted structures and locations and learn about their history through then-and-now photos. Additional maps from different historical periods provide information on architectural styles, homeownership patterns, and important events in New Orleans history. The exhibit links the touch table to iOS and Android mobile apps so visitors can save locations in their own personalized tours before heading outside to explore the French Quarter’s unique architecture and history.
