Narrative Navigation connects mobile storytelling with geo-locations and Augmented Reality (AR). Narrative Navigation is designed to help users better understand a story. In this paper, we introduce our mobile app prototype that guides users to the physical locations of a story using AR flags. We indicate not just story locations and the user’s distance to those story points, but also show the flow of a story through its geo-locations. The prototype thus provides users with a new way to immerse themselves in a location-based story.
