Abstract

The increasing amount of mobility data introduces an opportunity to develop novel urban applications that are integrated with everyday practices. Although simple events (e.g., visits to places) can be inferred from mobility traces, events have very different meanings in different contexts. To contribute to the body of work that aims to uncover effective methods to integrate ubiquitous computing technologies in urban spaces and context, we discuss interpretation of ubiquitous events in urban computing: food-venue visits. Based on a survey and a small supplemental study, we identify the spatial and social contexts that influence the meanings of food-venue visits. We also suggest a possibility of novel technological support for eating out.
