Sign Planning By Smart Device Installed With Image Integrated Application


Signs have meanings and roles such as guidance and alerting, and contribute to safe and secure community formation. On the other hand, there is also a risk that landscapes will be disturbed by duplication of information. The local fieldwork is an effective method in sign planning, because the regulation differs from the historical background and the will of the people in each local government. Therefore, the authors created an image integrated application which integrates pictograms with the background photos taken so that people living in their own area can take part in sign planning. Fieldwork was conducted for the educational area of Kyoto City using a tablet computer with the application installed. As a result, the landscape simulation using the application can be sufficiently performed, and it is clarified that the effectiveness of the application in the field works of the sign planning. Furthermore, this paper describes an improved application based on the problems in the field work so far. Here, in order to be able to operate the application more accurately without feeling stress, the application was re-created it, so that it could be handled using a smartphone application as a familiar device. Hence, by adding the map function to the smartphone application, integrated images are appeared on the map and route to the subjected place is shown on a display. Finally, the people can plan a sign in their own town using the application that can integrated the pictures and show a route to their favourite places.
