Here’s just a few good reasons to do so: transparent urban planning, commitment for the cityscape, monument conservation and a sound historic centre, interest in architecture and urban history as well as realizing educational projects.

Ratings and Reviews

Not intuitive and very glitchy on IPhone X

Artemis Frank

I do not have any idea how to use this app and it keeps crashing/freezing. No real good support for the app (that I can tell).
