Use this application to visualize a wild flower garden in your yard, and instantly see your world as a more beautiful and wild place with the Woodland in Balance scenario. Place different AR flowers on any flat surface, then plan a wild flower garden of your own. See and learn about the effects of deer over population in the Woodland out of Balance scenario and compare it to the Woodland in Balance scenario. Listen to the story to learn about why these woodlands differ. Use the “Plant Info” button to visit our website to the seasons in perpetual bloom on our 3D timeline, and learn more about eastern American wild flower gardening. The AR Perpetual Garden App was developed as an international collaboration between The Harrington Lab at the University of Central Florida, Powdermill Nature Reserve at Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and the MultiMediaTechnology program of the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, Austria. Undergraduate and graduate students were involved in the production of the app.
In order to have a good user experience, launch the app, and then allow the AR programs to find a flat surface – the ground or the floor, that will be indicated by some graphical markers. When markers appear, use your finger to tap the screen to plant the flowers. At this point, they are real flowers. You can bend down to see them closer, walk around to the side, or look up from below on tall ones! The app is best used in full light, or part sun.
