Limerick City Tales


Limerick City Tales is a Mobile App designed with the intention to investigate if such technology could be used to enhance the visitor experience on guided historical walking-tours. The Android Studio prototype integrates Google Maps, Image-Overlay on the camera (representing Augmented Reality) and Audio functionality. Mobile Tour Guide Apps have increased in popularity over the past few years and this study sought to investigate if history tour-guides could take advantage of such technology to use in conjunction with their tours, as it became evident that the social-human aspect was still an enjoyable part of the learning experience while visiting historical sites for many.
