Abstract

In this paper, we introduce the design of a location-sensitive calendar as part of an ongoing community portal project. CiVicinity's Events page supports the aggregation and presentation of activities and events throughout the community in one centralized location. The integration of location-aware features, including map visuals and distances based on a user's current location, enhances the locality of the online calendar. We support the design rationale of this calendar through a brief user evaluation study focusing on the benefits and additions of the location-sensitive features.
