The research has produced CamelTours (www.cameltours.org), an interdisciplinary project in collaboration with the Department of Anthropology. This project emerged from a marriage of the technical and design-based expertise of computer science with the goals of community-based anthropology at Connecticut College. CamelTours.org hosts and allows communities to easily and automatically create smartphone-based, self-guided tours for sharing natural and cultural heritage with local residents and tourists alike.
