Abstract Mobile guides can assist us on tours through cities, museums and universities but besides their application in urban centers they also have the potential to serve us as an instrument of environmental communication while exploring the wild. This paper proposes an extended context model for such a mobile guide system. As a mobile guide for exploring the wild needs to be highly context-aware, the adaptability of the user interface based on the available context is a key aspect of the development. User interface design issues, as well as results gained while testing a specific design approach in the field, will be discussed. Finally a user interface architecture suitable for such a system will be presented.
