NIWA and Wandermann designed a project called LBSCult that has initiated the construction of a network of competency for the development of an electronic culture guide for Vienna. Based on data models of Vienna's Culture Goods Cadaster and the picture archive of the Austrian National Libraray the concept of an open platform (LBSCult Service) has been created which connects multiple culture data bases, further content data bases, and GIS-systems and improves user inquiries with the help of Semantic Web technologies. It should enable the reception of touristic, cultural and historic information that is contextually related to the user's local position and personal interests, with mobile devices like PDA or smartphone.
