Urban environments are brimming with information sources, yet these are typically disconnected from related information on the Web. Addressing this disconnect requires an infrastructure able to disseminate information to a specific micro-location, to be consumed by interested parties. This paper proposes Aladdin, an infrastructure for highly localised broadcast of Linked Data via radio waves. When combined with data retrieved from the Web, Aladdin can enable a new generation of micro-location-aware mobile applications and services.
