This project is a tourism tool which acts as a mini guide book to a new visitor to a city. It is based on Cork city but can in the future be adapted to any city anywhere in the world and also can be adapted for any language.
The project is designed for mobile devices such as mobile phones and PDAs and provides the user with information on accommodation, restaurants, events and the weather in the area that they are visiting.
The project has some static information but also has, in terms of the weather report and the event guide, dynamic information, which is updated by a connection to the internet.
The user is also presented with a promotional video of the city which is accessed from a website and which will give an over view of what the city in question has to offer. The project makes use of a number of technologies, namely: J2ME, Photoshop and FinalCut and incorporates audio, video and java based animations.
