The next generation of route description systems will not only give way information at the beginning, but also during the way-finding task. The information will be brought to the user by stationary and mobile displays (e.g. info kiosk or PDA). Especially graphics play an important role to convey way finding information. In this paper we explain an approach, to generate such graphics that are tailored to the use on mobile devices.
