Best Paper Award for Computing's Map Research

A Best Paper award from the International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services has been received by the Computing department for collaborative research with the University of Munster on capturing You-Are-Here maps using mobile phones.

An EPSRC grant to continue the research was recently received by one of the paper's authors, Dr Keith Cheverst, with a value of 83,549 to fund a 3 year PhD student.

The research project is entitled: "EXTRAMS: Exploiting Traditional Map Signage with Mobile Devices". The project will investigate the way in which mobile phones can provide a useful and usable facility to support the capture, georeferencing and display of traditional You-Are-Here map signage.
