What it does

WildGuide is a mobile app that uses geolocation to give visitors to the Northwestern campus additional information about buildings and other landmarks on campus.

Users, point their phone’s camera at landmarks and Wildguide provides information about what they’re looking at — building names, professors who teach in the building, and the latest news about the school that holds classes there.

Users can also submit events that happened at specific locations.
