Many of theseapplications take advantage of smartphones as locative media, whichis what allows smartphones to be located in physical space.Applications that take advantage of people’s location arecalled location-based services, and they are the focus of thisbook. Smartphones as locative media raise important questions abouthow we understand the complicated relationship between the Internetand physical space. This book addresses these questions through aninterdisciplinary theoretical framework and a detailed analysis ofhow various popular mobile applications including Google Maps,Facebook, Instagram, Yelp, and Foursquare use people’slocation to provide information about their surrounding space. The topics explored in this book are essential reading foranyone interested in how smartphones and location-based serviceshave begun to impact the ways we navigate and engage with thephysical world.

Not only is locative media one of the fastest growing areas in digital technology, but questions of location and location-awareness are increasingly central to our contemporary engagements with online and mobile media, and indeed media and culture generally. This volume is a comprehensive account of the various location-based technologies, services, applications, and cultures, as media, with an aim to identify, inventory, explore, and critique their cultural, economic, political, social, and policy dimensions internationally. In particular, the collection is organized around the perception that the growth of locative media gives rise to a number of crucial questions concerning the areas of culture, economy, and policy.

Mobilities has become an important framework to understand and analyze contemporary social, spatial, economic and political practices. Especially as mobile media become seamlessly integrated into transportation networks, navigating urban spaces, and connecting with social networks while on the move, researchers need new approaches and methods to bring together mobilities with mobile communication and locative media. Mobile communication scholars have focused on cell phones, often ignoring broader connections to urban spaces, geography, and locational media. As a result, they emphasized virtual mobility and personalized communication as a way of disconnecting from place, location and publics. The growing pervasiveness of location-aware technology urges us to rethink the intersection among location, mobile technologies and mobility. Few studies have addressed the many transformations taking place in mobile sociality and in urban spatial processes through the appropriation of these technologies. This edited collection will address this gap by exploring the intersection of mobility, mobile communication, and locative media, as well as the implications of this for adjacent fields such as mobile art, mobile gaming, architecture, design, and urban planning."

The perspectives and techniques used in human-computer interaction design, practice and research are broadening. This book looks at emerging approaches which are likely to contribute to the discipline in near future. The underlying idea is that human character rather than technology should determine the nature of interaction. The concept of "interaction design" covers this range of concerns relevant to enabling quality design. Each chapter emphasizes alternative perspectives on interaction and new concepts to help researchers and practitioners relate to alternative design approaches and opportunities. This second volume provides a wider perspective, from both a scientific and geographic outlook. New topics, such as psychological design processes, gerotechnology, modelling, e-learning and subconscious experiences are discussed from a team of international authors. This book will be of considerable value to those seeking innovative perspectives upon designing and ensuring effective interaction between humans and technology.

Long description: Mit der Konvergenz von Mobilfunk und Internet, GPS, digitaler Kartographie und Social Networks hat sich ein Feld ”lokativer“ Medien herausgebildet, denen in den heutigen Medientechniken und -praktiken eine zentrale Bedeutung zukommt. Die Beiträge des Bandes widmen sich diesem jüngsten Medienwandel und bieten Einblick in die Entwicklungen und Phänomene ortsbezogener Medien. In einem multidisziplinären Spektrum kritischer Beiträge beleuchtet der Band die Dynamik, den Hintergrund und die Formen ”lokativer“ Medientechniken sowie ihre Implikationen in der gegenwärtigen Mediengesellschaft und -kultur. The convergence of smartphones, GPS, the Internet, digital mapping technologies and social networks has given rise to a broad field known as locative media. The essays in this book investigate this media change and provide an overview of the multifaceted development and phenomena of locative media, highlighting critical approaches from related disciplines and drawing attention to its dynamics, its backgrounds and different medial forms as well as to the implications of locative technologies in contemporary media culture and society.

Mobile media – from mobile phones to smartphones to netbooks – are transforming our daily lives. We communicate, we locate, we network, we play, and much more using our mobile devices. In Mobile Interface Theory, Jason Farman demonstrates how the worldwide adoption of mobile technologies is causing a reexamination of the core ideas about what it means to live our everyday lives. He argues that mobile media’s pervasive computing model, which allows users to connect and interact with the internet while moving across a wide variety of locations, has produced a new sense of self among users – a new embodied identity that stems from virtual space and material space regularly enhancing, cooperating or disrupting each other. Exploring a range of mobile media practices – including mobile maps and GPS technologies, location-aware social networks, urban and alternate reality games that use mobile devices, performance art, and storytelling projects – Farman illustrates how mobile technologies are changing the ways we produce lived, embodied spaces.

The role of location-based social networks (LBSNs) on identity is a relatively unexplored area within the growing cannon of work on locative media. Following an exegesis of Giddens’s argument that narrative biographical accounts are critical in self-identity in the modern age and Foucault’s technologies of the self, this article positions LBSN, and in particular Foursquare, as a contributor to self-identity in users’ lives. A close reading of ethnographic and interview data from Foursquare users reveals that in the context of the presentation, maintenance, and reflection upon self-identity, LBSN use can play an integral role in the self-identity of its users. The contribution of LBSN to indicators of user lifestyle, the intentional sharing of particular locations, and user recollection of events and locations are the key features of how LBSNs provide conduits to self-identity. The degree of usage in everyday life is identified as critical in the positioning of LBSN as a key contributor to identity narratives. With the integration of LBSN features into more mainstream social media platforms, this contribution to self-identity in the social media age is resilient to the demise of stand-alone LBSN applications.
