QR code use in heritage and conservation

You might assume that QR codes only link to website pages, but in fact they can also be used to link to pictures, audio, video, plain text and even interactive games. Many of these new ideas about how to use QR codes are still in their infancy, so that’s why IT’s in Conservation is running public research to help develop and improve the use of QR codes in four heritage locations in the South of England.

This project will help visitors to get the most out of visits to the heritage properties around the UK. Whilst this first stage is a limited trial covering just four locations, the benefit of QR codes is that the cost of introducing them is relatively low and the impact of them fairly minimal. There is a QR Code research questionnaire which will allow QR trial users to submit comments on their experiences.

If the research is positive, then we hope to roll out QR codes to lots of other heritage places across the UK.
