ToARist: An Augmented Reality Tourism App created through User-Centred Design

Meredydd Williams, Kelvin Yao, Jason Nurse
2017 HCI 2017  
We finish by reflecting on our design and critiquing the challenges of a strict user-centred methodology.  ...  We solicit requirements through a synthesis of domain analysis, tourist observation and semi-structured interviews. Through four rounds of iterative development, users test and refine the app.  ...  Furthermore, AR apps have a limited field of view (Tokusho and Feiner 2009 ) and often require an awkward stance.  ...
