Having spent a fair amount of time hiking or skiing in the Rocky Mountains, I can attest to the usefulness of this app–The Canadian Mountain Parks Companion: Banff Edition.  In a city, it can be easy enough to use a top-down map rather than an AR app because the logical and easy-to-follow nature of the modern city.  The outdoors have a sneaky way of looking the same.

I’ve had many an argument with a family member about: “which mountain peak is that over there.”  Even holding a map doesn’t help you because the distances are so huge.  This would be an easy way to understand the topographical vistas at an app’s glance.
