Structuring the daily life information based on the map metaphor


We propose a method to manage the daily life information obtained from the Internet based on the place by the map metaphor. The map metaphor is used for a user to identify places, and the daily life information obtained by a user is stored on the places where a user thinks the daily life information is located in the map metaphor. And to manage efficiently the daily life information kept abundantly, the daily life information saved by a user is structured hierarchically based on the geographical relations between them and the map metaphor reflecting that structure is realized. With this, to manage efficiently the daily life information is realized by the map metaphor with which the daily life information is managed based on the place, reflecting the way how a user uses the map metaphor.
