This demonstration paper describes the mobile application developed by the EAGLE project to increase the use and visibility of its epigraphic material. The EAGLE project (European network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy) is gathering a comprehensive collection of inscriptions (about 80 % of the surviving material) and making it accessible through a user-friendly portal, which supports searching and browsing of the epigraphic material. In order to increase the usefulness and visibility of its content, EAGLE has developed also a mobile application to enable tourists and scholars to obtain detailed information about the inscriptions they are looking at by taking pictures with their smartphones and sending them to the EAGLE portal for recognition. In this demonstration paper we describe the EAGLE mobile application and give an outline of its features and its architecture.
