The project investigated the feasibility of delivering wireless Location Based Information (LBS) services in a regional Australian adventure tourism context. The services were delivered through the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite technologies. The project findings established the feasibility of service delivery and will contribute to the establishment of a regional mobile implementation strategy for LBS in the adventure tourism industry. The outcomes of the project include: a strategic plan for the delivery of LBS services over handheld devices; a proof of concept generalisable solution; and formal partnerships with the tourism and recreation industries.
