    Abstract/Description

    We introduce our initial investigations into the phenomenology of place
    as part of the BENOGO project. BENOGO is concerned with giving
    people the experience of ‘being there without going there’. Employing a
    state-of-the-art mixture of photorealistic, real time rendered images,
    three-dimensional soundscapes and augmented reality to create a sense of
    place. The work reported in this paper we describe as ‘benchmarking’,
    that is, establishing how people experience and describe places in the real
    world. We then will be able to compare the BENOGO experience with
    these benchmarks. This approach should be seen to be more naturalistic
    and relevant than the use of post hoc presence questionnaires
