Smart.Map has been developed on behalf of Expo 2015 S.p.A. and in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, within the two-year project Alta Scuola Politecnica. It is based on using technology as a proactive system to implement the meaning of a territory and to build and strengthen connections among local actors, physical places,
citizens and tourists. The objective is the enhancement of the main characters of a specific city and its metropolitan area, through thematic itineraries and the creation of a network of local businesses under a common brand. This provides an immersive, customized, interactive and social experience of the urban environment, as well as a usercontext direct interaction. Smart.Map has an inclusive approach towards all the major actors of the considered territory (PA, possibily existing agricultural districts, the major producers of agro-food products, local associations, tourists and citizens), towards whom it interacts through a smartphone app and a web platform providing dynamic customized itineraries with gps navigation, e-commerce services and real-time data management.
