Abstract:In the real world there seem to be essential differences between shops,
tourist offices, city halls, theatres and museums. However, when we try to
design virtual environments allowing services, transactions, explorations and
communication, are these environments really that different? Doesn't the
"virtual" in virtual environments allow us to introduce possibilities for visitors
that extend those that are available in each of the mentioned physical
environments and that can be become common for each of them? In this paper
we survey our research on these issues and our attempt to integrate this research
in a virtual environment devoted to the presentation and exploration of theatre
information. We try to make clear that the topics we have to deal with do not
differ from those that deal with access to commercial environments, museum
and educational environments and other service and transaction environments.
