English abstract:
The rapid development of the mobile internet enforces the emergence of
location based services. Beside car navigation systems, which are
standard equipment to many drivers all over the world today, guiding
systems for pedestrians gain more and more importance. While drivers are dependent on tight directions, pedestrians can be provided with more detailed information. Many different possibilities are imaginable in this respect, but not all of them are effective as guiding instructions.
In this paper general considerations about wayfinding tasks in urban
environments are discussed and diverse communication methods are
investigated regarding their potential as route finding aids.
