Implementing Mobile Applications for Virtual Exhibitions using Augmented Reality
Keywords:Mobile Application, Virtual Exhibition, Augmented Reality, Android
The purpose of this article is to present the possibility of implementing a mobile application for virtual exhibitions. Nowadays, the history and art consumers have available web expositions, but compared to personal computers, the mobile smart devices provide a huge portability and very fast internet access. Sending the history/culture/art in this way is a step forward and could mean a scope extension. Also implementing such mobile applications in the field of history/culture/art could mean a helpful tool in education. The paper describes the mobile augmented reality systems and two different existing applications used in museums, in order to reveal the advantages of implementing mobile applications in the cultural field.
