6. GEOTRIPZ APPLICATION
The GeoTripz Guide MVP Application allows community members (“guides”) to set up locations, events and activities in their communities using the functionalities of a mobile GIS (Geographic Information systems) by uploading content (pics) and related geographic coordinates via the Guide app. These are termed “GeoTags”. GeoTripz markets the geotags both in the domestic and international tourism markets. The geotags are marketed individually or as part of a tour within the community. In this way a guide has access to a large potential market at no cost. Paired with this is the GeoTripz Guest Application which allows any member of the public (“guest”) to book and pay for a visit to a location, event or tour.The Guest MVP application also allows the Guest (domestic or foreign tourist) to view and interact (digitally) with the GeoTags posted by the Guide.
The Guide MVP Application also allows the guide to drop questions and clues relating to a GeoTag. Guests can respond to these using the MVP guest application. Both guides and guest earn points by interacting with the relevant application.
