About the Project

The GRTagTour is designed to entertain and educate visitors and residents about our community by using mobile technology bringing location and information together. The unique, scan-able barcode for each stop along the tour connects stop-specific visitors with a mobile website containing:

Codes are scan-able with any QR barcode reader application installed on an internet enabled smart phone. If a reader is not available, the mobile sites may also be accessed by entering a URL on the phone's web browser.


The tour is a joint project of the Community Media Center, Experience Grand Rapids, The Grand Rapids Historical Commission, Grand Rapids Downtown Alliance, and The City of Grand Rapids. Audio stories on the tour are produced by The Historical Commission and WYCE-FM (a service of the Community Media Center).
