          Abstract

          At last year’s EVA conference a paper was presented by the authors entitled “Applying Augmented Reality to Preserving Industrial Heritage”. This paper outlined an alternative and holistic method of preserving the cultural heritage of industrial sites, which would otherwise have been lost, using augmented reality and mobile technologies. Newcastle, with its strong industrial history, was presented as a case study for this method. In December 2011, the authors were awarded a small pilot grant entitled “Reconstructing Victorian Newcastle through Augmented Reality and Mobile Technologies”. The purpose of the grant, for the amount of $A15,000 was to lay the foundations for the larger study of the industrial heritage of the city. This pilot grant funded an exhibition, the equipment, a research assistant, and the associated websites. This paper examines how these aims were successfully achieved on such a small budget and its impact on the community.
