Location Based Audio - A Wikipedia Example

While not strictly an example of location based audio, this is exactly what I was thinking about when I wrote last week about "the idea of printing roadtrips and posting a paper copy of a story in a physical location."  Note the QRCode in the lower right corner.  

This is an example from the Jardin des Plantes in Rennes, France.  Note the viewport from which to direct people specifically to the subject of the article.

It appears that vandalism is an issue.  So perhaps, paper copies of stories are more pragmatic.

Imagine your station's reporting placed in prominent areas of your community, where people could gain insight into their neighborhoods and where the value of your reporting could be visibly reinforced.
