Scan and Learn: QR Codes in the Florida Botanical Gardens

Theresa Badurek

Abstract


The objective of this project was to create a system that uses QR
(Quick Response) codes to increase knowledge gain by visitors to
the Florida Botanical Gardens. QR codes are a two-dimensional
barcode that may contain virtually any kind of data, including
links to websites, text, videos, etc. These QR codes were placed
on existing botanical signs in the gardens. The QR codes can be
scanned by visitors’ mobile devices, which link them to an online
resource for further information, such as a University of Florida
publication or website. The Florida Botanical Gardens are part of
a Pinellas County Park that is open 7 d a week and opens earlier
and closes later than the Extension office.
