Walk the WTC (World Trade Center) site and listen to firsthand accounts of 9/11!
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum has brought us Explore 9/11 an app that’s a guide to understand 9/11 through the eyes of who witnessed the events. Given the sensitivity surrounding the events of 9/11, viewer discretion is advised.
Explore 9/11 brings you 3 main features:
a Tour, Explore and Timeline of the worst terror attack on American soil.
A seven-stop walking tour of the area around the WTC, accompanied by audio and photo narration. The events of the day and its aftermath are told by first responders, rescue workers, volunteers, and those who lied and worked in Lower Manhattan on 9/11. While the walking tour takes place in Lower Manhattan, the tour content is accessible to users anywhere.
View images related to the events of 9/11 and the aftermath taken nearby wherever you are. Photos may be viewed in Augmented Reality-technology mode which overlays images on the camera view. All photos were contributed to the museum by survivors and witnesses through 911.org.
An interactive timeline of the day’s events and aftermath. Includes links to witness photos taken during these time blocks.
For non-US visitors this app can operate in an offline mode, for those who have disabled the data roaming. All the tour content is still accessible. You are also given a map of free WiFi hotspots near the tour route for downloading “Explore” photos from the vicinity.
