Overlaying Paper Maps with Digital Information Services for Tourists

977 views

Published on

Presentation given at ENTER 2005, 12th International Conference on Information Technology and Travel & Tourism. Innsbruck, Austria, January 2005

ABSTRACT: Despite the increasing availability of various forms of digital maps and guides, paper still prevails as the main information medium used by tourists during city visits. The authors describe how recent technologies for digitally augmented paper maps can be used to develop interactive paper maps that provide value-added services for tourists through digital overlays. An initial investigation into the use of these maps to support visitors to the Edinburgh festivals is also presented.
