Infomobility & Geographic Information
This theme is a combination of two distinct, but linked calls. One addresses "Info-mobility", while the second focused on "Geographic Information Systems".
- Infomobility aimed to develop, demonstrate and validate new/improved user friendly info-mobility services for transport/travel, business, tourism, leisure and other applications. These being realised by linking fixed/mobile communications with navigation/positioning, efficient transmission and delivery over the network as well geo-information. These services allow the mobile citizen to have seamless access to, and interaction with, personalised - location dependent - rich content multimedia information, that are are, at the same time, essential parts of the autonomous and self-configuring business structures emerging in electronic businesses.
- Geographic Information Sytems help improve citizens' awareness and comfort, industrial competitiveness and the efficiency of public administrations by enhancing and supporting the use, access and management of geo-information. Work will cover research and development, demonstration and validation of geo-information and is expected to contribute to the eEurope initiative and in particular to the priority actions on 'government online', 'citizen environmental awareness', 'intelligent transport systems', to the recommendations of the green paper on access to public information and to the actions on European digital content. Target application domains include transport, mobility, tourism, entertainment, e-map, e-Commerce, statistics, meteorology, environment (e.g. modelling systems for preventive, early warning and relief purposes, environmental monitoring, risk assessment and decision support, environmental data management), as well as intelligent publishing and delivery mechanisms.
