An online museum is also available on the app. Thanks to the aerial photographic technology, panorama photographic technology and virtual reality, the app is capable of presenting a full-round holographic map of the Beijing horticultural expo. On the map, each site is equipped with videos so as to provide detailed background information for expo visitors.
