The application realizes a Mobile Blogging Application. This application represents a distributed Java-based software system including mobile and static components. Blogs are created on handhelds and consist of a Photo, a Message as well as information about Location and Time of the blog creation. Additional information like Elevation Levels, logical Location Information, and covered Distances can be obtained easily. These geo-tagged blogs are available for a subsequent manipulation and exploration in a mobile context. A Blogging Service gives the mobile user the opportunity to transfer these user-centric blogs to an Application Server. The blogs are thereby accessable through a web-based cartographic Interface. The access to the created and posted blogs is under full control of the content owner. The annotations within a virtual map through blog-related Waypoints enable an expressive representation of distinct activities. The application scenarios are thus mainly in the tourism sector, but also in the research sector in cases where a location-based Documentation of artifacts seems to be useful. The application is based on J2ME and is therefore platform independent.
