You can now explore the city in augmented reality on Driftscape! Access the new AR mode and see nearby markers appear in the streetscape around you. It's a new way to discover local arts, culture and history.
Compatible with iOS devices (iPhone 6S and later), the AR mode displays markers within 400 meters of your location (about a 5-minute walk), and also shows the distance to each place.
These markers represent places of interest, events, and tours from over 30 local organizations such as Heritage Toronto, Toronto Public Library, The Distillery District, First Story and many more.
At Driftscape, we believe that creating a platform where diverse stories can be shared will inspire a greater understanding of the spaces we inhabit and the people we share them with.
