English abstract:
Cartography is seen by many as facing a change of paradigms currently, triggered by technological challenges. As a result of innovative available technologies like the Internet, Multimedia and telecommunication infrastructure it becomes considerable, that cartographic communication processes can be realized which deliver user-tailored information to a specific user everywhere ("ubiquitous") and anytime. The part of scientific cartography analyzing such conceptions is called "ubiquitous cartography".

This paper reviews a selected set of applications, especially location based services (LBS) and within LBS especially pedestrian navigation services and ubiquitous cartography. The review illustrates the enormous diversity of fundamental questions which are appearing when trying to support collaborative mappign, pedestrian wayfinding and the extent to which they are becoming pervasive. By discussing the main decisive aspects for navigation services, namely positioning, modelling and presentation aspects, various results of projects in the domain of LBS and pedestrian navigation support at the Vienna University of Technology are discussed and the "road map" on tackling open research questions is presented.
