The Grand Canyon got its name for a reason, the vast expanse stretches over 277 miles in length, up to 18 miles across and over a mile deep, but when it comes to the relatively more “manageable” portion of the canyon, located inside Grand Canyon National Park, Chimani’s Viewport tool can help.

A feature of the Grand Canyon National Park mobile app by Chimani, the Viewport tool is an augmented reality viewer that allows park visitors to virtually look through their mobile device to locate points of interest in the park around them. The user can simply orientate their device in any direction and see the names of popular sights as they relate to the person’s current location.

The video below shows how Chimani’s own Tom Tash recently used the Viewport tool within the Grand Canyon National Park app to navigate from the South Rim to the National Park Headquarters building.

While cellular connectivity is mostly available at the South Rim and Grand Canyon Village, much of the park, and most other national parks, do not have cellular or WiFi connectivity; this is NOT a problem with the Chimani national park apps. Each app works without the need for cellular or WiFi connectivity, using Chimani’s GPS-enabled maps with offline capability.
