In the late 1980s, Mark Weiser, a technologist at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, created the term "ubiquitous computing." In his disquisition on "The Computer for the 21st Century," Weiser (1991) assumed that in the near future, a great number of computers will be omnipresent in our everyday life and that they will soon be interconnected in an ubiquitous network. Especially in the last decade this concept gained in importance not only in computing but also in other disciplines (Baard 2002). Recently, geo-scientists have discovered the possibility of using the omnipresent computer landscape for exploring our spatial environment and established mapping as a part of the ubiquitous computing concept.
