Walk1916 is an Irish Research Council funded project directed by Dr. Benjamin R. Cowan and Dr. Amber L. Cushing of the UCD School of Information and Communication Studies.

Using a platform developed by Haunted Planet Studios, the app overlays snippets of historical images from collections housed by Dublin cultural heritage institutions over a modern day scene, so the viewer can glimpse a view of what a historic site looked like and compare it to a modern day view.  The project  aims to explore mobile walking tour interfaces as well as ways in which people can interact with historical collections outside of the traditional setting of a library, archive or museum reading room and/or website.
