The QR guiding service at Thingvellir and Gulatinget has proved to be very successful.  Google analytics for August-September 2012 demonstrate that m/thingvellir/althing and m/thingvellir/foundation_of_the_althing have obtained 73 and 50 hits respectively, and are amongst the top 10 most visited pages on thingsites.com.  The mobile homepage has also been popular, and entrance rates show that users are navigating between pages once they have arrived on the mobile site, demonstrating that they are successfully navigating through the layers of information available.

QR guiding was identified as a useful tool for organisations and groups wishing to develop heritage trail material at the Dingwall THING Project Dissemination event.   There are now plans to extend the QR trail to the Faroe Islands, where it will be tied in with the Geocaching trail.  QR codes placed in Geocache boxes will allow users to gain more information about the sites they are viewing once they had found the cache.

In addition to a QR code guiding service the THING Project has also rolled out QR codes linking to both www.thingsites.com and www.thingproject.eu on all promotional material developed.
