MOVIES intend to develop tools and methods for rich multimedia content distribution to mobile users. MOVIES will also prepare operational deployment of such services, by providing efficient production means, designed for integration of geographic and multimedia information and define commercial business models, suited to rich information content. Specialised components will be studied and developed for machine translation, location-based services, and geographic and mobile multimedia content production terminal. Pilot system will be demonstrated in a car travel application in Germany, France and Spain.

Objectives:
The goal of MOVIES project is to provide enhanced information services for mobile users and vehicles. Foreseen services are based on rich content within a geographic context, depending on users locations and profiles.
Main objectives are:
