Abstract: This article discusses technical solutions for representing archival sources in urban areas. We strive to realise the interconnectedness of sources, its beholders and the concerning entity through the location where the information was recorded the first time. This will be exemplified by a recent project at the University of Graz. Thereto, we need to identify problems in the analogue world mainly dealing with the classification of archiving, semiotic systems, descriptions and assignments. We use existing mobile technologies and software applications from different application fields and test their suitability for our concern. Comparing and transferring analogue methods to the digital world is a real challenge we like to accept when it comes to solving identified problems that arise in the context of modes of practice in archives and web representations.
