The tourist tricorder gives the user a feel for the density of a geolocated data set in their local sourrounding, for example: listed buildings, restaurent reviews, geolocated twitter feeds. This allows the user to wander without specific goals in mind but towards geographical areas which will be of personal interest. Furthermore the system allows users to slice out samples of the data in a specific direction, and listen to them using speech synthesis to gain an insight and a 'feel' for what an area has to offer. The aim is to mirror the sense of discovery tourists feel in a new place in terms of geolocated internet information, but without interfering or obstructing the real world experience.
