This project uses laser scanning to explore the potentials of introducing Virtual Tourism by means of Augmented Reality to mitigate over-tourism and today’s CO2 emissions. Virtual Tourism could signify the necessary paradigm shift for the tourism industry since its work pipeline, the City Scan Procedure (CSP), is constructed with the intention of giving local stakeholders better control of their tourist destination, by regulating today’s unrestricted development. The project is based on laser scanning field work in three countries. This pilot study takes place at Fredriksdal Open Air Museum, Helsingborg.
