Main Article Content

Fernando Vera J. Alfredo Sánchez


We present a work in progress related to an Augmented Reality (AR) platform, which is intended to be used by the end user to create their own stories through multimedia content. Based upon a review of existing tools to create AR scenarios in the context of smart cities, we have developed SituAR, a platform in which the user is able to create AR content using multimedia, storytelling and gamification elements. Our goal is to facilitate the creation of AR scenarios and to empower users to become authors. We also include social media elements used for users to share, rank, and comment the content created in order to add new information and to facilitate interaction. This paper discusses SituAR and its potential. In addition, we present preliminary prototypes. Finally, this project is aimed to produce an engaging platform for promoting cultural heritage through interactive stories added to POIs by end users.
