HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall University is receiving a grant to enhance an app created by an associate history professor.

The funding will help further develop the Clio app created by David Trowbridge. The app provides GPS-guided information on historical and cultural landmarks in small towns and large cities across the United States.

The university said the National Endowment for the Humanities awarded $60,000, pending a $60,000 match raised through the institution, to be granted in $20,000 installments over the next three years.

Trowbridge says Clio can notify a user about places and histories they might otherwise miss. The school says Clio is on track to have more than 6 million page views in 2017.
