This bachelor thesis aimed to develop an application which encourages documentation through photography at Universeum. Furthermore, the application aimed to support social interaction and enable sharing of the photographs. The project was carried out in collaboration with Museum 2020. The application was developed for Universeum, a museum and science centre in Gothenburg, Sweden. In order to motivate visitors to photograph at Universeum, gamification methods including feedback, reputation, rewards and progress have been used. Two prototypes were designed, tested and evaluated before the final application was implemented. The testing results indicated that by using the application the participants interacted together and photographed more at Universeum. However, these results must be interpreted with caution and further testing is required.
