Abstract

This chapter gives a general introduction into map-based mobile services which are considered as value-added location-based services. Starting from an overview of digital map types, their rapidly growing affordances and required learning efforts, the natures and design constraints of offline screen maps, web maps and mobile maps are comparatively studied. The aspects of immediate usability are highlighted as a central thread drawing together the essential research challenges involved in the design process of user-centred mobile maps.
