Bletchley Park Text

Using mobile and semantic web technologies to support the post-visit use of online museum resources

The Bletchley Park Text system is an information service provided for visitors to Bletchley Park, the home of the British Government's Code and Cipher School during the Second World War. The Park is now a museum dedicated to telling the story of the work done there and the influence it has had on our modern day communications and computing technology.

Visitors to the museum identify the items of interest to them by sending SMS text messages containing keywords taken from labels on the exhibits. These messages are later used to select relevant resources, which are organised into a number of views and presented as a personalised website for the visitor to explore when they return home from their visit.
