Abstract

This paper describes a prototype digital economy service that generates ‘photostory’ souvenirs for group day-trips to an amusement park. Location-based triggers prompt visitors to use their mobile phones to capture, share and annotate photos during the day. Selected photos are combined with professional photos from on-ride capture systems and a template is used to generate a bespoke photostory - an “Automic” souvenir. The design of this prototype system was informed by an ethnographic study of park visiting, and this is discussed along with directions for future work.
