Project thoughts

There is great value in the creation and implementation of visual tools in the accurate presentation of history. The scientific literature supports the value of using interactive mapping tools to enhance learning. However, it can also be valued to enrich the museum visiting experience. In a time where technology and information is quickly evolving, it can be used to add enjoyment. The multimedia and technology used by the Australian War Memorial is a great example of effective implementation of such technologies. Personally, I believe the experience at the AWM leave much to be desired when visiting other military museums such as the Infantry Museum at the School of Infantry in Singleton, NSW or the Imperial War Museum in London, UK. Data visualization is a helpful learning tool and it also adds to the overall enjoyment of the experience.
