Abstract

We present a context awareness framework to assist a Museum visitor’s learning process by providing an enriched tour experience. We adapt the information a visitor receives about an artwork based on their interests and knowledge. We show how this is achievable by implementing a system that passively and unobtrusively gathers information using physical and virtual context. We also allow the visitor to visit virtually museums in different places while still benefiting from information adapted to their interests and knowledge.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
