How do you encourage foot traffic to lesser travelled areas on Granville Island?

Stickls is an Augmented Reality (AR) app for iPhone and Android.  Stickls is a proof-of-concept prototype that allows users to pin stickers in virtual AR space overlayed on actual physical locations. Built at the Centre for Digital Media, the app was designed for implementation on Granville Island, but can be adapted and expanded to different locations.
