In this paper a framework for a novel kind of applications called Augmented-Mobile-Tagging (AMT) applications is presented. AMT applications augment classic Mobile Tagging applications with information from existing Location Based Services (LBS) in a seamless way. This leads to very powerful mobile applications without loosing the efficiency, intuitiveness and robustness of the visual tagging application. We have implemented two AMT applications based on this concept and are currently running two field trials, one a campus information system on the university campus and another, called LocalTagging, running in the town and surroundings of Winterthur.
