Abstract

TelARscope is a gamebased touristic augmented reality telescope. Its interaction and exploration concept is sufficient for a heterogeneous user group such as tourists. It enables not only to watch augmented content overlayed at all times statically but also to explore it completely interactively. We evaluated the telescope with 91 real tourists.
