ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Present virtual heritage projects are mostly focused either on 'process' or 'product' but rarely consider 'user' (end user's perception of the content) with project contents predominantly developed with an 'ocular-centric' tendency. There is no significant interpretation method or principles for interpreting digital heritage unlike other disciplines such as archaeology. This paper argues that, for better interpretation and experience of a digital heritage site, a comprehensive interpretation method is required, which should address multicultural background of end-users and overcome the linearity and subjectiveness in content creation. This paper also argues that instead of pre-determined instructional sequences or descriptive interpretation, the interaction setting can be participatory and contributive, where the visitor and environment may interplay mutually with each other. As a methodology, 'Interpretation' is first conceptualized by assimilating definitions from heritage scholars and organizations. Notions of interpretation-practice and level of interaction were identified from reviewing some online digital heritage projects. By identifying weaknesses, this paper finally proposes a few suggestions for overcoming and possibly developing a comprehensive interpretation method for future digital heritage projects. ©2010, Association for Research in Computer-Aided Architectural Research in Asia (CAADRIA).||Source Title:||New Frontiers - Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design in Asia, CAADRIA 2010||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/45485||ISBN:||9789881902610|
