About Botanics Nearby
This app helps you explore some of the fascinating things that surround you on a visit to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
Simply click the "Nearby" button on the home screen and then maybe pick a topic of interest.
Data is loaded over the internet so you need to have an active data connection for it to work. This can either be provided by your phone company or you can use our Wi-Fi network (Botanics Visitor) which is available in and near our public buildings.
You should be aware that if you are not on our network you may be charged for data usage by your provider especially when listening to audio.
When you are outdoors the app uses GPS to find your location. In some indoor locations it uses BlueTooth LE beacons to identify where you are. Your BlueTooth needs to be turned on for this to work.
Privacy: In order for us to tell you what is around you we need to record your location but we do this entirely anonymously. Our servers record the location of a data request but not who makes the request.
