  15. 15. USE CASES 1: Mobility Pass for Real Estate My place of residence or operation – what does it cost me? Relationship between the selection of the location and the mobility behavior, Calculated mid- and long-term costs in terms of time, mobility costs, CO2 emissions and possible accident risk.
  16. 16. USE CASES 1: Mobility Pass for Real Estate Modeling mobility patterns and lifestyles; measuring costs and CO2 emissions Save costs, strengthen mobility behavior; reduce environmental impact Service for user (buyer/tenants) and real estate agents
  17. 17. USE CASE 2: Web-based Maps for Blind Data Source: OSM Automatic generation of a semantic spatial description
  18. 18. USE CASE 2: Web-based Maps for Blind Data Source: OSM First prototype of textual description (Map in Words) with visual interface
