UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) will be the emerging new standard for wireless communication and information transmission which will permit broadband internet access on mobile devices. This makes multimedia applications for wireless handheld devices become reality for the first time.

LoL@ is able to determine the user's position, to give him a guided tour of various sights of the city and offers Location Based Services (LSB).
LoL@ is a result of a two-year-research project of the Institute of Cartography and Geo-Media Technology , Vienna University of Technology (URL 1), in co-operation with a Consortium of Austrian Research Institutes and Telecommunication Companies .ftw (URL 2).
