Location-aware wireless devices are expected to provide an immersive experience whereby users will be able to browse layers of digital information encoded to a particular place. On the other hand, pervasive location-awareness also raises the possibility of tracking a user wherever there is a service signal, a scenario that has sparked considerable debate among media artists, who are often early adopters/explorers of the field known as “locative media.” This chapter describes applications for mobile computing and virtual heritage, and examines how locative media in the context of virtual heritage creates the notion of a collaborative mapping of space, along with the intelligent social filtering or “narrowcasting” of that space. It also discusses the concept of geo-storytelling and spatial culture as well as media ecology.

Keywords:   mobile computing, virtual heritage, locative media, space, intelligent social filtering, narrowcasting, geo-storytelling, spatial culture, media ecology
