Challenge 6: The land ownership and zoning controversies in public history

7 Aug

How can the Civil War Augmented Reality Project positively affect the protection and maintenance of historic locales?

We believe that public participation in projects that geographically locate sites, people, and events in real space will lead to a greater public appreciation of the value of public land and building ownership.
We feel that knowledge of the past is inherently linked to real, outdoor places. Augmented reality applications like ours will reinforce this connection. The public, we feel, will in turn be more proactive in the protection of historic places.
