This is an interactive city map that enables users to customize the layout of visuals, texts and sound elements just like thumb-tacking items to a bulletin board. The programs used for the visualization of the cartographic material and the user interfaces make for easy, intuitive, user-friendly access. The intention is to get across the virtual cityscape’s specific quality through the retrievability of individual elements: soundscapes, visualized urban imaginings and text-based metropolitan impressions. The result is a unique, self-contained format for “location-based multimedia storytelling.” Plus, as a web application,WikiMap Linz is simultaneously a module of the web portal of “Hotspot Linz,” the city's wireless LAN initiative.
