Public involvement in defining and interpreting cultural heritage offers many benefits, including improved learning opportunities for individuals and a broader base of knowledge about art and heritage. This knowledge can in turn be used for better, smarter, information provision in the future. This paper proposes how to capture, analyse and present cultural information from differ-ent viewpoints, using narrative principles to uncover important settings (place and time) themes and people and using these to support both physical and con-ceptual navigation. We propose novel methods to provide and capture ‘in the moment’ information, via mobile devices, for both formal and lifelong cultural learning within a smart city.
