LOcation-based Communication Urban NETwork (LOCUNET), Regional Operational Programme for Attica 2000-2006 [ ]

LOCUNET is a research project that aimed to investigate the novel forms of communication that emerge as a result of the convergence of geographical positioning services, mobile communications, and graphical user interfaces. The result of this convergence was the appearance of locative media. More specifically, the result of this research programme is a theoretical model of the use of locative media and the forms of social interaction that may take place within a modern urban context. This model will assist the design and development of locative media. For the purposes of evaluating the proposed model, a location-based communication system was developed and used for supporting an activity comprising numerous mobile users in central Athens.
