Tourism information mostly is geographically related information and, therefore, many useful location aware applications can be offered. A PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) in connection with GPS function allows us to guide tourists to the desired sights or to hiking and biking tours of a tourism region. For a multimedia visualisation of tourism information pictures, sound, text and video elements were integrated in order to record the effectiveness of the mobile device. Cartographic illustrations using satellite images and digital maps are the base for an innovative presentation of tourism information in their spatial context.
