Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Telesis Expectations To implement an electronic hiking guide showing best practice for regional development through telecommunication and using new techniques especially in the context with GALILEO Develop transferable techniques especially to the fields of (besides hiking): sight seeing, event management, logistics, public transport, wellness, sport, travelling in general a.s.o Develop and establish a new product and service
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Management View Telesis is responsible for the project management. After calculating everything it turns out that the co-ordination work, PR, documentation and billing was more work than at first expected. Due to the additional work done by Telesis, there is a slight change in the budget between the project partners STT, Stand Montafon and Telesis. Stand Montafon and STT have declared themselves prepared to waive a number of hours on behalf of Telesis, the reason being that the above named organisations will have increasing benefits from the finished product. These organisations will be able to offer their guests the results of the project and use it as a means of advertising. In addition, Telesis worked on an increasing amount of content for the pilot application and also carried out PR work. From the viewpoint of the project management, we are proud to have been able to achieve all the goals of the project and to have a product that is ready for the market. In addition, we have aroused interest in the market and achieved a demand for the project results.

Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at t-guide existing solution for a standard mobile telephone without GPS or a GALILEO receiver. These mobile devices are wide-spread. By posting telephone numbers in important places the location- based information can be accessed by a user at that location by simply dialing that number. Beschreibung t-guide mit Asterisk und UTA hier einfügen
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at MontaPhone The MontaPhone is a specific Java-based application for mobile phones with access to a positioning device such as a GPS or GALILEO receiver. This application serves as an improved interface to the audio information of the t-guide by providing a location-based interface the list of audio-POIs is constantly checked against the user’s position
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at SmartGuide The SmartGuide is a PDA-based solution. The PDA is equipped with an internal positioning receiver Complex software was developed for the PDA. It makes possible to: to integrate the contents from the L-CMS manage and present them and make them available according to the GALILEO signals of the current use location The SmartGuide is the central result of the LOCCATA project
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at LOCCATA Access Developed interfaces and co-ordinated communication techniques Phone The MontaPhone provides current contents via the telephone. A SMS connection was initially implemented for content acquisition, but later dropped in favour of an integrated package for the user to download and install thus increasing ease-of-use. Web All of the contents are managed on the internet The LOCCATA specific content management system was developed and implemented in the framework of the project. This will be explained in detail in the following sections Package to go This is the method of choice for communicating the rich route content information to the SmartGuide. A full package of all contents is built and deployed on the mobile device.
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at LOCCATA Content Management System (L-CMS) L-CMS manages three content areas Media Items texts, audios and pictures are structured, managed and prepared for implementation Points of Interest individual points that are of interest. Hiking tours individual tours are managed in this part of the L-CMS a tour contains POIs, route details, route description the structure enables multible use of individual media items and POIs

Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Routes Routes are portrayed as explicit directions in the form of: descriptions and a map, as well as pictures Routes are designed to in the existing route descriptions of the local ‘Vorarlberger Wanderwege Netz’ (Vorarlberg hiking trail network) and have descriptive attributes such as parking possibilities, walking times, vertical meters up/down and so on. Any number of points of interest can be added to all the routes.

Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at L-CMS Route Detail
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Points of Interest POIs The individual points of interest along the route: The description of the POI is made up of clear-cut ID and a description Each POI has a location assigned (latitude and longitude in WGS84 and an optional altitude given in meters above sea level) Every viewpoint and each sight-seeing object, as well as non-visual information (such as an historic battle happened here) are designated as POIs. The POIs can be assigned to any or all of the content objects (audio, text, videos, pictures). In addition, other POIs can be assigned to the POI, for example: a list of objects and an “information group” is then created. In this way, reuse of the contents in multiple POIs and POIs in multiple routes is possible, which is a pre-requisite for the efficient maintenance of the data.

Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Content - Bernhard Maier
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Route Attributes A route is made on the basis of the Vorarlberger Landeswanderwegekonzeptes (Vorarlberg State Hiking Trail Concept, a European best practice example) In the case of LOCCATA, the goal that was pursued was to stay compatible with the existing routes and to set a uniform definition basis for all of the route proposals. The information and attributes for a route were uniformly defined and realized in the L-CMS by those responsible for the hiking trails in the State Department
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Points of Interest Extensive knowledge of the area is necessary for choosing the content The information offered along the route should be interesting, well balanced, varied and correct The decision about where and which points are mentioned is made by the editorial team of the content provider The compilation of contents is carried out by a team of experts Example: The Kristberg Hiking Trail needed historians, geologists, biologists, foresters and tourism experts It proved to be very important to have an experienced editor consolidate the contents after an interdisciplinary team had prepared them in order to be able to provide a coherent overall picture.
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Cartographic Content1 Collecting and evaluating the co-ordinates Creating GPX track Creating a map in 3 level of detail Optimising the map for the SmartGuide
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Cartographic Content2 Multi scalar picture, which means that the different degrees of zooms make the simultaneous visualisation of different scales possible Besides the depth of the content the big advantage of LOCCATA maps is the dynamic extensibility of the maps offered through overlaying additional map contents. Laser scanning-hillshade as cartographic background data Adapting all of the existing geo-data to the new elements in a very time consuming process, using on-screen digitizing Geo- information system (GIS) offers the greatest possible transparency and design possibilities
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Routes Because, up to now, the hikes have been recorded based on the official map of Austria at the scale of 1:50 000, they also had to be adapted to the high resolution laserscanning-hillshade. This made a completely new digitizing necessary in many areas. The GIS-route data set was exported to the gpx-GPS track format and then transformed into the WGS84 geodetic datum. This data is dynamically displayed as overlay on the PDA to enable the user to match his own position to the route track.

Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at External Services The assignment of external consulting or other services was arranged by the partner that was responsible for a particular work package. These were things like petty complementary services and the purchase of hardware necessary for the project. The hardware purchases were for test equipment and equipment for the pilot application. Altogether, 16 different models were purchased and run for the field test and also to have a sufficient basis. These pieces of equipment were important for demonstration purposes. The purchase of goods and services was only carried out after making inquiries at various places and then taking advantage of the best offer.
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Deviation During the project and after deeper discussions in the project team, it appears that the LOCCATA service adoption would significantly benefit from the availability of a mobile client on SmartPhones along with the PDA. Therefore in addition to the PDA solution, the LOCCATA team took charge of the integration SmartPhones in the system and called it MontaPhone. This technology differs from the PDA in that the information is accessed via telephone from an interactive voice response. Contrary to the MontaPhone, the information accessed by the PDA is stored locally.
Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Dissemination and Future Applications, Exploitation (Jochen, Manuel, Bernhard, Franz) During the project we were able to catch the attention of interested groups for the creation of the LOCCATA product. The local and trade press were also interested in the mid-term and end results at our presentations. Because of this there was already a demand for the product by the end of the project. At this moment – 4 weeks before the official end of the project, negotiations are being carried out with operators who want to implement an area wide application in a tourism area.

Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Telesis Business Plan1 LOCCATA Product The business model is similar to a concept for services The concept foresees the ongoing co-operation between Telesis, OFFIS and Lovely Systems Telesis will take on the role of consultant and product launch and will charge for its services accordingly The project partners agree that an application for a patent for LOCCATA will not be made. The idea of making the system available by means similar to an open source concept will be considered by the partners. Such a step might be useful for fast reactions to market changes, a broad development base quickly integrating new mobile devices and for enhancement of the promotion of both LOCCATA and GALILEO positioning technology. Meanwhile, the partners agree and are prepared to put an operational product on the market, expending additional effort even after the official end of the project. The project consortium intends to use EGNOS and GALILEO as it will improve the robustness and the quality of the service.

Final Presentationhttp://loccata.telesis.at Conclusion & Achievements The relatively short duration of the project was a challenge for the partners. The goals could only be reached because the partners brought in a lot of pre-existing work and knowledge and worked together in very close collaboration. However, the tight timescale left no time for further perspectives beside the work plan. From the partner’s point of view, the project was a great success: All objectives of the project consortium have been reached. A highly sophisticated system has been designed and implemented that fulfils the requirements of its users. The touristic institutions in the Montafon region have clearly committed themselves to introducing the system into practical use. The project partners will still be available in the future to further develop the system and adapt it to future requirements. The project consortium has achieved all the goals as set forward in the project proposal and has created a sustainable solution for technology-assisted mobile hiking in the Montafon as a pilot region for GALILEO. The partners are confident that the LOCCATA project will have a lasting impression on the region, its touristic attractiveness and the perception of modern satellite navigation technology.
