This paper presents the development of the Tourist Guide, a location based tourist guide application for the outdoor environment. Our focus for this project is on software support for location based applications; we are not just interested in the location but also other elements of the user's context, such as buildings in view, attractions and equipment near by, such as public telephones and toilets. In this paper we will describe the Tourist Guide system and discuss the processes involved in the development of this application. More specifically, this paper will look at the design and usability issues.
