3D Map of Tasmania
The City of Hobart presents Augmented Tasmania, a realistic map of Tasmania that is experienced in 3D using augmented reality*.
Augmented Tasmania lets you explore the state’s coastline, rugged mountains or head off to the Bass Strait islands, all through your mobile device at Mawson Place on Hobart’s waterfront.
How it works
To try the map, download the Uist app onto your mobile device, go to Mawson Place on Hobart's waterfront, look for the Augmented Tasmania sign and select the ‘Augmented Tasmania’ experience in the app.
Look for the purpose built AR models:
• Gordon Dam
• kunanyi/Mt Wellington
• Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
• Salamanca Market
• Tahune Airwalk.
Augmented Tasmania operates during daylight hours, 7 days a week and was developed by a local technology developer, Handbuilt Creative.
Caution: Mawson Place is a shared space. Please watch for cyclists and vehicles.
