Abstract

Recently, services providing information content that meet the needs of a user's current location, based on location information obtained by mobile terminals such as cell phones, have been increasing. In line with the widespread use of these Location-Based Services (LBS), digital compasses that obtain bearing information together with location information are also emerging. By using the digital compass with the location information, a higher level of information can be produced. In this paper, a "XingMenu Viewer" for viewing the information menu of a town from intersections using a digital compass is proposed. In the town exploration experiment using this viewer, it was observed that the exminee's perception of the town had expanded.
