Abstract

Digital memorials are currently addressed in several studies on the design this type of system requires. However, as different types of memorials have different needs, this research analyzes characteristics of this type of software in terms of design, structural elements, cultural relevance etc. This paper presents an overview of recommendations for digital memories from several published articles and sums them up.
