What is DIGIE?


DIGIE stands for Digital Information Gateway in El Paso.

DIGIE is the family friendly name chosen for the 2012 Quality of Life Bond project once referred to as the Digital Wall. It is a vast collection of images and videos (more than 12,000 to-date) exploring El Paso’s past and present including an interactive 3-D CityScape. Digie is presented on five 95” touch-sensitive monitors that interpret our region through time,neighborhoods and themes. It is located at the entrance way to the El Paso Museum of History.

 


Mini DIGIE

Mini DIGIE is a portable version of DIGIE. It is nearly 7’ long, 6.5’ high and 2.5’ deep. Our goal, as Mini-DIGIE travels around the City of El Paso, is that neighborhoods take the opportunity to upload their family histories into the museum's database so that others around the world will experience El Paso's past and present.  

See Mini DIGIE in action at Eastwood Knolls International School
