Abstract

We address environmental information multimodal communication by making use of the air quality (AQ) paradigm. AQ information dissemination methods and tools can make use of various telecommunication channels for pull and push service provision. In addition, location based services are also emerging in the field of personalised, quality of life services. Moreover, com- munication per se is not based solely on written or oral language forms, but makes use of graphical, symbolical and in more general terms multimedia language communication schemes, via properly designed multimedia environ- mental information content, streamed via multimodal communication channels. Human perception and communication of such information is based on design schemes that may convey the message in an understandable and effective way. The present paper suggests a design approach to multimodal communication of AQ information.
