Abstract : Interactive geographic maps are widely available nowadays. Yet, these maps remain mostly limited to standard interaction contexts and only allow a small panel of expression means to novice users. For example, most available interactive maps only enable users to explore content but not to contribute to the content. On the other hand, the " Smart city " process enlightens the importance of providing ways of expression to the citizens as they are directly affected by urban issues. We introduce a spatial augmented reality map, in which a virtual map is projected on a physical piece of paper. This system, developed for a museum, has two main uses for the users: expressing themselves about their city, and exploring the multiple visions of that city. In a preliminary study we compared interaction techniques for this system based on multi-touch, tangible and spatial modalities for three common map functions: zooming, repositioning the map excerpt, and changing the basemap. Based on the results from this study we designed a new version of this prototype and present future working directions.
