Location Linked Information

Location Linked Information (LLI) introduces a scalable infrastructure to support access to and creation of virtual information nuggets that are tied to a physical space. Imagined as initially being 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. LLI is implemented as an extension of the Jabber instant messaging protocol.
