City of Ottawa
Time-travel in the palm of your hand.
The City of Ottawa Archives and Accurate Creative launch the Time Traveller App.
Inspired by Canada’s 150th anniversary celebration, the City of Ottawa Archives and Accurate Creative collaborated to create Time Traveller—a mobile app experience highlighting one historical event for each of Ottawa’s years since Confederation.
The Time Traveller app allows people to embark on a journey through time on their smartphone, reading stories, viewing photos and locating landmarks related to 150 meaningful events that took place in the Ottawa area from 1867–present.
Time travellers can move through history in one of three modes:
Via ‘Map’ mode, using geolocation, where they can find the actual site of an event or receive alerts when they are near its location
Via ‘Timeline’ mode, where they can browse events organized by year
Via ‘Teleport’ mode, where they can randomly generate a tour of events
