Owing to lack the knowledge of the historic spot, the masses are insufficient of understanding the inner meaning of a heritage even they spend a lot of time. According to lots of research reports, a guide that allows people to interact or to operate by themselves is more attractive than the usual one. In addition, we can offer the masses more feeling of participation and more excitement through the Augmented Reality. The objective of this research was to discuss how to utilize the technology of Augmented Reality to let the visitor increase the immediate interaction, then deepening the experience of surveying a historic place.
This research was divided into three parts. The first part analyzed the status and the interaction of the guide in the historical sites. In this study, we take Mengjia LongShan Temple as an example. In order to understand the users’ feeling about using the Augmented Reality, the second part used UMPC and Field Study to demonstrate the simulated interfaces of Augmented Reality and extract what kind of guide people would like to have when they were in a tour around heritage sites. After comprehensive analyses of questionnaire and the survey of the users’ favorite interface, the author obtained a list of comments for the follow-up development of a historical site guide. The third part relied on the results of the analysis to carry out the prototype interface design and the experiment of the Mobile Augmented Reality Guide System. And then discussed how the method of Augmented Reality Guide influenced the users. The participants needed to carry out three tasks and finished the questionnaires.
The conclusions of this study are as follows:
1. The digital content of Augmented Reality presentation causes a great visual stimulation for the users, especially the differences between the digital content and the actual site. The differences from those traditional navigation methods offer the users a novelty.
2. Electronic map make it easier than the usual one and allows the users to understand the interrelation between the surrounding environment and its location. It is helpful for the guide process.
3. Map in the navigation process plays an important role. The option of the electric map should be segmented particularly on each page so that the users will be answered by clicking the map option when they have a problem.
4. It makes the user impressive by using the characteristic of scene and the digital content of Augmented Reality. The matching method will make the users pay more attention on searching the target assignment. If the users read the content of the spot where they want to visit carefully, the peripheral spots will also be noticed during the searching process. It is helpful not only for the experience of learning but also for the advance of knowledge.
5. The virtual character of Augmented Reality plays a role as a guide that not only increases the navigation experience but also enhances their interest in navigation
6. The use of paper tag is not perfect as expected. The reason is the technology does not spread extensively so that people cannot use it in everyday life. For the reason that the users are not familiar with the usage of Augmented Reality, they will have some problem to operate them and the efficiency of guiding will be influenced.
