Dear Humanist list members,

is anyone of you aware of a project (either active or in development)
that allows users to simultaneously access various types of information
about a specific place (e.g., a city), such as its history,
architecture, literary and artistic movements, etc., using
location-aware mobile devices? This would not be a commercial tool such
as Yahoo=C2=92s or Google=C2=92s mobile sites that offer restaurant guides and
other services, but would instead function as a cultural guide that
would enable users to both serendipitously and intentionally discover
how various disciplines intersect at a particular location.

Thank you,
