Element - - Upfront -

Try not to walk off a cliff while you’re look­ing at your phone. Project Ton­gariro in the cen­tral North Is­land has launched New Zealand’s first in­ter­ac­tive smart­phone ap­pli­ca­tion for a National Park. Called the Pocket Ranger, the free-to-down­load app is de­signed to of­fer an in­ter­ac­tive and multi-me­dia ex­pe­ri­ence that pro­vides in­ter­pre­ta­tion, maps and im­ages of the unique nat­u­ral fea­tures of the Ton­gariro National Park while at the same time con­veys im­por­tant safety mes­sages. The Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion has part­nered with Project Ton­gariro on the project.
