dc.description.abstractThis work builds an infrastructure called Location Linked Information that offers a means to associate digital information with public, physical places. This connection creates a hybrid virtual/physical space, called glean space, that is owned, managed, and rated by the public, for the benefit of the populace. Initially embodied by an interactive, dynamic map viewed on a handheld computer, the system provides two functions for its urban users: 1) the retrieval of information about their surroundings, and 2) the optional annotation of location for communal benefit. Having the ability to link physical location with arbitrary information is an essential function to building immersive information environments and the smart city. Public computing systems such as Location Linked Information will enhance the urban experience, just as access to transportation dramatically altered the sensation and form of the city.en_US
