Today we launched our first West Coast version of our landmark finder app – Landmarks: San Francisco! With more than 250 official city landmarks, San Francisco is a leader in the historic preservation movement. Now residents and visitors in the Golden Gate City can easily locate these sites and learn more about them while they’re out and about with their Palm Pre or Pixi.
Thanks to the San Francisco Planning Department’s Historic Preservation program and GIS division, the app provides interesting info about each landmark. We not only show a thumbnail photo for many of them, but we also display the site’s architect & architectural style, year built, and the site’s original use and original owner. We also include links to Wikipedia and the NoeHill website.
Some screenshots below illustrate what you’ll find with Landmarks: San Francisco:
We’ll be adding more photos and updating the info in the future. Feedback is welcome!
