What is it about?

This publication explains the Soundscaper - an audio augmented reality system. Soundscaper is a mobile application that using headphones recreates 3D soundscape for archaeological site. The soundscape is composed of sounds such were in ancient times, when the archaeological site was active. The user walks through the site from one checkpoint to other while listening to the soundscape. When it comes to the check point he also hears its audio description. Visual interface of the mobile application is very restricted in order not to interfere with the users audio impressions.

Why is it important?

This publication brings not only the description of an audio augmented reality system applied to tourism and archaeological sites, but also presents the measurement of the user reactions to using it. User reactions were measured subjectively - by questionnaire, and objectively - by emotional computing equipment. Both methods proved that user arousal was higher when visiting site with an audio augmented reality system.


This publication presents a useful application of audio augmented reality system, while delivering it through a simple device - ordinary mobile phone with headphones.
