This paper introduces the first combination of a mobile tourist guide with a digital library. Location-based search allows for access to a rich set of materials with cross references between different digital library collections and the tourist information system. The paper introduces the system’s design and implementation; it also gives details about the user interface and interactions, and derives a general set of requirements through a discussion of related work.
