  • Publication number: 20100146546
    Abstract: Provided is a method for providing target information related to a medium program. The method includes: a step that a user medium device receives a medium program containing destination information related to the medium program; a step that the user medium device extracts the destination information from the received medium program; a step that the user medium device transmits at least a part of the extracted destination information so that a user position identification device further performs processing on it; and a step that the user position identification device processes at least a part of the transmitted destination information.
