A smartphone app called RAHS Explorer is now available which provides information on all of the buildings that have received Heritage Awards. The app is available for free on either Google Playstore or Apple App store. As of July 2019, RAHS Explorer is also available as a “web app” that can be run on a desktop computer, or on any device that has an Internet browser. All three versions of the app will allow you to find awarded buildings, learn about their history, search by architectural style, architect, builder, date of construction, etc.
Historic maps are also included which allow you to see the surroundings of the properties for various years in the past. The app can use your location to show you historic buildings in your immediate vicinity. The Android and iOS versions of the app can also provide directions to buildings of interest from wherever you are located at the time.
