Final updated report (version 2) of the Urban Tapestries project (2003-04).

Urban Tapestries explores the convergence of mobile technologies with geographic information systems from the point of view of people going about their everyday lives. Proboscis identified this as a crucial area to develop as a majority of research projects focused on tourists as the main user group and replicated nineteenth and twentieth century print and broadcast communications methods. Urban Tapestries builds upon the distributed nature of twenty first century network communications.
