The Open Karelia network is an open museum system that is currently covering museums of Euregion Karelia. The system is free and open for all museums. The system enables any user to easy access all museum content, regardless of a brand and operating system (Android, iPhone, etc.) of the mobile phone or tablet. The system does not require installation of additional applications. At the same time thanks to advanced web technologies we provide the user with all standard means of support and ensure general scalability of the system. The system data could be accessed directly from museum, just take a shot of QR-code by the camera of your device using any standard QR-reader program and you will get the space of museum information system. The system is also accessible from the touch screen information kiosks located in the museum and from your home PC. Moreover, the system provides the traveler with outdoor support by automatically identifying user’s location and advising the nearby objects.
Smart search and analysis of data are the key features of the system. We make sure that the system is giving what you are looking for with minimal effort on your side. This is not an easy task, as for device it is very challenging to interpret users’ wishes and define what is really desired. However, development of information systems in this direction is the obvious trend of the time, and our system is fully matching to it. We understand that too much information would confuse the user, so the system offers a number of advices that are based on various sets of parameters, which are defined based on experience of museum experts.
