Abstract

There is a wide range of metadata standards for the documentation of museum related information, such as CIDOC-CRM; these standards focus on the description of distinct exhibits. In contract, there is a lack of standards for the digitization and documentation of the routes followed and information provided by museum guides. In this work we propose the notion of ``narrative'', which can be used to model a guided museum visit. We provide a formalization for the narrative so that it can be digitally encoded, and thus preserved, shared, re-used, further developed and exploited, and also propose an intuitive visualization approach.
