denCity.net creates virtual networks of real places.
QR-codes (2D barcodes) are used to tag buildings and urban sites. your mobile camera phone can read these tags. simply shoot them and log in to denCity.net.
denCity.net provides information to the specific place.
Via denCity.net, you can browse through the web of tags. The tag is the key. Once shot, you can always return to the places, virtually. It's the city in your pocket.
Anyone can tag places and thus create a new denCity-site.
Just log in to denCity.net - create a spot on the map and print the generated tag to attach it to the real-world location.

Smoothly combining the virtual with the real, each tag in denCity.net has a physical location. A map can be underlaid to allow easy orientation, even substituting a navigation system!
There is no need for GPS, RFID and thelike: Each tag has its own coordinates by which the keitai knows its position.
denCity.net augments, ie. enriches a city. Unlike pages in the internet, denCitys tags are linked to places, but also can link to the internet, iMode or other tags within denCity.net.
