For those of you who have already donated to the National Museum of the United States Army by purchasing a commemorative brick, tree, bench, or unit tribute, The Army Historical Foundation (AHF) has some exciting news for you. A locator app is currently in production to assist in finding your donor recognition plaque or brick on the Museum’s campus. When finalized, the app will be available on AHF’s website, armyhistory.org, as well as on the many kiosks that are located throughout the Museum.
Finding your contribution will be made easier as we are developing a map of the Museum campus to show visitors where specific plaques and bricks are located and provide directions to the specific area. For those unable to visit the Museum in person, the app will also allow Museum supporters to view photos of their sponsorship online.
AHF has been working with Esri—an international supplier of geographic information system (GIS) software, web GIS and geodatabase management applications—to create an app that will be convenient and user friendly for all Museum visitors. “We know some might be excited to explore the grounds searching for their brick or tree, etc. However, we want to ensure that everyone who has chosen to support the Museum through one of these sponsorships is able to find theirs with ease,” explained Samantha Chavez, AHF’s Associate Director of Donor and Membership Programs. “We are excited to be working with Esri on this great feature that adds to the visitor’s overall experience.”
