Growing a tourist guide

Lukas Sklenar and Ian Utting

In Nick Ryan, Tullio Salmon Cinotti, and Guiseppe Raffa, editors, Smart Environments and their Applications to Cultural Heritage, Epoch publications, pages 182-196. Archeolingua, Budapest, Hungary, September 2005.


In this paper, we propose how a truly ubiquitous tourist guide could be grown by its users by ultimately relying upon them to be the suppliers of a comprehensive list of interesting locations. We describe how these locations would be added, and how they could be shared across an infrastructure to effectively reach all users that have an interest in them. We then outline how effective this particular strategy could be in reaching groups of users interested in particular cultural areas.
