Tourist Guide for Northern Periphery (TG4NP)

TG4NP intends to exploit the new potential of existing mobile networks and GPS technology by offering tourists information about cultural, touristic and natural attractions in a user-friendly way through today’s advanced mobile phones. TG4NP will provide a range of solutions to serve information directly to the traveller’s mobile phone at the right time, based on the traveller’s location. Location-based and personalised services are at the core of TG4NP; its promise is to implement and provide tourism-related value added mobile services across mobile and fixed networks and to develop design solutions that deliver performance on both 3G and robust, scalable and accessible wireless services.
