Abstract

This article presents the AVATON system. AVATON aims at providing citizens with ubiquitous user-friendly services, offering personalized, location-aware (GSM Association, 2003), tourism-oriented multimedia information related to the area of the Aegean Volcanic Arc. Towards this end, a uniform architecture is adopted in order to dynamically release the geographic and multimedia content to the end users through enhanced application and network interfaces, targeting different device technologies (mobile phones, PDAs, PCs, and TV sets). Advanced positioning techniques are applied for those mobile user terminals that support them.
