MYGLOBE is an interactive map media which allows us to share our cognitive maps. This map grows up with our own activities and shows our subjective view of the city by emphasizing roads or landmarks frequently used. Users can bring up their own city in the device by actually walking in the city, and also share their own maps with each other and discover unknown places. Present map services such as Google maps and Google Earth, provide mash-up tools which allow us to create our own favorite place on the map easily. We can use hand held GPS devices to make our own travel route and navigate to destination places. MYGLOBE allows us to not only tag their favorite places on the map but also change the shape of the map itself. Instead of an accurate geographic map, MYGLOBE provides maps reflecting the user's individual experiments and the view of the city. It can also be used as a communication tool to share the life history with your friends. MYGLOBE will enhance your city experience.
