Abstract

When visiting cities as tourists, most of the times people do not make very detailed plans and, when choosing where to go and what to seem they tend to select the area with the major number of interesting facilities. Therefore, it would be useful to support the use choice with contextual information presentation, information clustering and comparative explanations of places of potential interest in a give area. In this paper we illustrate how MyMap, a mobile recommender system in the Tourism domain, generates comparative descriptions to support users in making decisions about what to see, among relevant objects of interest.
