This Master’s Thesis is an investigation of the suitability of mobile transient search to facilitate exploration of urban attractions and activities. In Melbourne, Australia, five contextual interviews were conducted to better understand the needs for an event finding system. A working mobile application was designed, developed and subsequently evaluated in a laboratory setting. In Aalborg, Denmark the system was redesigned and developed into two variants for finding urban activities. The system was deployed and evaluated in a field study with ten participants. Follow-up field evaluations were conducted with seven participants after four weeks of use. 62 anonymous users downloaded the app online and 16 participated in an online-administered questionnaire. The results of the questionnaire are yet to be analysed.
This thesis sum up the findings of the two research projects and discusses the combined outcomes.
