The Dinosaur Island app - How it works & how to download


Walking with Dinosaurs on the Isle of Wight

Before you set off on your dinosaur expedition to the Isle of Wight don't forget to download the FREE Dinosaur Island app from anywhere in the world. You can do this by following the instructions below.

The app utilises Augmented Reality technology which allows you to use smart phones and tablets to take pictures of family and friends walking alongside the dinosaurs that roamed the Isle of Wight 130 million years ago.

 

How it works

Click on the “information tab” to map your current position and the location of the six meteorites. You’ll need to visit one of the meteorites to trigger your unique dinosaur encounter.

Please note: the special augmented reality features won't work until you arrive at one of the 6 coastal meteorite locations on the Isle of Wight.
