SERVINGO represents a non profitable research project, supported by German Government, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer, Intergraph, Navteq and other companies.
The goal of the project is to support the efficient and innovative execution of the FIFA Football World Championship 2006 and to create an IT-supported service platform that enables the provision of an integrated information & logistics support (structure) for the most varied target groups within the context of large sporting events. The services or content will be playable over various, innovate channels: from the Internet to radio (GSM, GPRS, UMTS) to broadband DVB playout. This platform integrates mobile aspects, taking relevant approaches, such as Location Based Services, into account, while going beyond the exclusive support of mobile system components and the corresponding push/pull services, and integrating the stationary access to preparation or viewing of the personal "diary" or a personal dayplanner.
GCWare as a long-term specialist in Mobile Mapping Services and Location Based Services is sponsor of the SERVINGO project. GCWare has delivered data center for the project, represented by geo-coded and complex map data from organizing cities.

It provides the visitor with information on pedestrian routing options, information on “points of interest”, mobility-related localities, such as train stations (location of entrances and exits), as well as public transport and train information. GCWare has leveraged its long-term experiences from B2C and B2B mapping & navigation projects in Europe and Middle East.
