Abstract
An often heard critique on the use of ICT in a heritage context is the individualized nature of the experience. Group communication is an important aspect within a cultural experience, because it can encourage participants to interact with one another and to stimulate each other. Another aspect of great importance is the blending in of the virtual and the real achieved by using context based information to provide relevant information and services to the user. Nowadays, there is no square and ready solution for the transferring of context information and visitor related data. There is a clear need for a high-level network architecture, reusable for the mobile opening up of historical heritage locations. In this paper we present such an architecture, which will be mapped to a specific heritage site. We also focus on the location info collection of the users, which makes it possible to create location-aware services. Therefore, we implemented and evaluated a location determination system containing three algorithm classes which use receiver signal strength information to infer locations.
