The workshop will show you the current features of Map Story Engine, and how you can create your own location-based app even with little prior knowledge of Unity. You will be shown how the app can identify real world locations through map APIs (Mapbox and Google Maps), as well as how you can customise your project through the use of bespoke audio, overlaid 3D objects, and interactions with them. You will also learn how to build your project to an iOS or Android phone.
The workshop will include tips for designing apps that take place whilst visiting real world locations, and how your project could easily be expanded to include additional plugins, or data that available through the user’s mobile phone. The workshop will also include brainstorming your own ideas for a location-based experience, to understand how they could be realised within Map Story Engine if you wanted to continue working on your idea.
