WebApp Development for Enhanced Cultural Heritage Experience through mobile Augmented Reality
Timo Engelke and Jens Keil

The use of mobile devices in cultural heritage is still a new field of research, while the amount of potential applications grows from day to day. Due to the enormous increase of technological capabilities, mobile devices are suitable for performing Augmented Reality in cultural heritage applications.
During the last 10 years, Fraunhofer IGD has developed the mobile application framework “instantAR” for iOS and Android devices enabling high-level development of Augmented Reality solutions. It provides an efficient environment for the development of AR applications on mobile devices based on common standards like HTML, Javascript and X3D. While providing convenient interfaces and abstractions it maintains great flexibility in order to also realise advanced interaction paradigms for AR.
The full day tutorial will introduce into the concepts of the "instantAR" framework, its provided development environment, discuss the possibilities for deploying standards in AR-Systems, demonstrate its capabilities and present the full range of potentials for a deployment in research and commercial environments targeting diverse stakeholders in the cultural heritage domain. Attendees will learn basics and advanced solutions for tracking technologies, how to use them and add advanced interaction capabilities supporting not only single- but also multi-touch gestures in order to create a higher user experience. The authoring environment will provide an ideal platform to integrate several technological building blocks into one coherent application by allowing an integration of user driven content.
The target audience is not restricted to research and development but also addresses designers, web developers, education, curatorship and managers of cultural heritage institutions.
