Point duty interpretation is required when the person helping the tourist must stay at a spot. For example, a person could be asked to stand at the entrance of the Museum to point out different galleries for people which they would be interested in. An architectural student will want to visit the gallery for architecture first and point duty interpreter will help him or her. The person would be focal to everybody that enters either the exhibit setting or would be entering a spa or a museum etc.
Visitors will not need a guide at all times. Sometimes, they like to have a private experience. They would like to have the option to call on an interpreter or guide if needed. Here Roving interpretation is handy. The roving interpreter will rove with the group and will present information only when he approached. People sometimes know more about the tourist experience than the tourist guide themselves. They could be experts in the tourist situation they are having and will not require the services of the tourist guide. In such a case it so happens that a tourist guide would only probably get in the way of the tourist experience.
Presentations, form of interpretation, will be suitable for guest who would like to have some information on the tourist experience that they are about to have. This could be for children where interactive presentations could be made, or it could be for adults. It could be an optional choice for a tourist.
Demonstrations done with props or other settings would be useful interpretation in the context where young children or an easily bored audience is involved. Demonstrations can be simple enactments. For instance, where the tourists are going to visit a boating place, the guide can show how to latch lifejackets.
Living history, form of interpretation, is like a demonstration. The interpreters might dress up to present something. For instance, in the presentation of early settlers, the interpreters will dress up like the early settlers. They may talk languages with accent like early settlers. They might not use current slangs.
Interactive interpretation is where 3D, 4D and immersive technologies will be made use of for tourists. Tourists would be able to feel and comment on their experiences. For instance, the tourists’ experience created in Disneyland is interactive interpretation.
