The DigITal Heritage Tour project investigates how an emerging technology called “iBeacons” can be used to deliver
location-based multimedia content for digital guided tours, walks and games, thus adding value to existing amenity
locations. The project seeks to develop a prototype system for examining outdoor use of this technology in DIT’s historic
Grangegorman campus – a multimedia “urban woodlands” walk, which can be used as an escape from daily stresses and an opportunity
to increase: physical activity, familiarity with surroundings, and social interaction.
