In 2015 in Flanders (Belgium) an ErfgoedApp (heritage app) was launched. It was developed by Vidinote and FARO with PixLive. The program allows to construct and use Augmented Reality applications, linked to heritage items, col-lections and institutions. In 2015-2016 master students in archaeology, arts sci-ences and archivists experimented with the app, as part of the course work. They managed to produce applications that work, provided feedback to further develop the App and offered reflection on the relation between heritage work, cityscapes and augmented reality and the differences between working with or towards texts or visual information. Low or no cost for distributing and using the applications in practice in heritage and academic contexts proved possible
