QR codes have been affixed to 351 historic buildings across Shanghai for residents and tourists to scan and obtain background information about these sites, according to a meeting held by Shanghai Municipal Tourism Administration on Wednesday, Laodong Daily reported.

By the end of 2018, a total of 391 historic buildings, including 31 former residences of celebrities and 12 historical and cultural areas, in Huangpu, Xuhui, Jing'an, Changning, Hongkou and Yangpu districts will include QR codes.

By scanning the codes on nameplates outside the buildings, people can obtain information in the forms of texts, graphics, audio clips and VR panoramic maps. According to Xu Weiwan, director of the administration, authorities will further develop local sites into "community experiences" that showcase Shanghai residential culture and architecture, public landscape areas featuring events and characteristic landscape tourism for special historic sites.
