MATISSE 2000 (IA 1109)
Metropolitan Area Tourist Information Support System for Europe 2000

MATISSE 2000 will act as a counter weight (against competitive measures that non-
European regions are taking) through the development of ITC technologies using innovative
telematic and integrated services. The project aims to act as a tool for informing tourists of
issues before they arrive at their destination (like traffic and parking information or cultural
events) while taking away the negative impact that tourists have on the areas that they visit
leaving local re-sidents with traffic problems and shortage of resources.
MATISSE 2000 will examine the possibilities of using ITC to help tourists, SMEs working in
the tourist sector and public administrations, providing unrestricted access to integrated
services through voice, data, fax and mobile communication.
Investigation will concern the usage of smart-cards, standard service access and payment
systems, electronic offer and provision of innovative services.
