dencity.jpgan impressive location-based database system that releases information based on the user locality, to 'examine the enrichment of real urban sites by a virtual dimension of information & networking, accomplished by localisation of the virtual'. QR-codes (2D barcodes) are used to physically 'tag' buildings & urban sites, which can be scanned by normal mobile camera phones to receive localised information of the specific place. a virtual online map visualizes the database content, the emergent interconnections & the resulting urban densities. the maps can be explored interactively by adapting various data mapping settings.

Attaching tags to places where they would be visible to others is not as easy as it sounds. If you don't ask permission for attaching a tag, it will probably be removed before anyone else can see it. If you do ask a permission, people still feel suspicious. "If we allow you to put this tag on our wall, then we should also allow others", said a clerk at the Helsinki museum of modern arts.

hi, we also checked out plazes.com (also see yellowarrow.net) and your comment may be right.
denCity.net, however, is not limited to just tagging your favorite sites. shop owners for instance can tag their business, companies apply a tag to their scyscraper's facade, and so on...
