Abstract

Using digital media technology, e.g. augmented reality, to convey information about cultural heritage, is becoming increasingly more common. While augmented reality is considered useful and innovative for this purpose, systems based on this technology do at times fail to meet the end users’ needs. This paper describes the continued user-centered development and evaluation of an indirect augmented reality application, used to convey information and to visualize the lost Viking ring fortress of Aggersborg, with the larger goal of improving the user experience currently available at the Aggersborg site.
