4110.1 - Location-based applications using analog maps for sustainable local tourism information services

Tuesday, July 4
8:30 AM - 8:50 AM
Location: Coolidge

Conventional paper-based tourist maps are still being created and provided by local tourism organizations, as they have advantages in representing highly specified and contextual information, although limited by the static media. This research proposes to establish a sustainable ecosystem for the local tourist maps to utilize them in mobile devices to benefit from the location-aware environment, interactivity and feedback data. A low-cost solution of providing tools are realized to georeference the maps and integrate multimedia sightseeing information owned by local tourism organizations for developing mobile tourism applications. The Processes for map georeferencing and content integration, as well as the design principles of the mobile tourism applications, are discussed in details. In cooperation with university campuses and local tourism organizations, experimental applications are implemented to evaluate the functionality and usability of the proposed mobile mapping application, and the feasibility of the proposed solution. Some of these applications are published in App Store.
