Abstract
Nowadays, GIS are used in a static environment in which computing is the main task. However, there are many application areas like maintenance, archaeological excavations, hiking, and tourist excursions, where spatially-related information is very useful, but not the main task. Current GIS do not yet support these outdoor applications because the available hardware is too intrusive and the systems also lack of appropriate interaction techinques. In the Deep Map project, we are developing such a wearable GIS which accompanies a tourist through the historical city of Heidelberg.
