Information boards are an essential element for the location of both temporary and permanent information for a given location. The poster boards are especially suitable for temporary information – both planar and spatial in the shape of cylinders – so called rotundas. The system of one – sided or double – sided signs on the pillars is suitable for permanent information. On these systems, there is graphically processed information, both text and image, for instance different orders for visitors, descriptive and educative information about the objects and places in the immediate proximity, maps etc. The specific element of permanent information media, especially in the urban environment, is the orientation systems. These are the elements to navigate visitors in the direction to important or significant places in the city. In practice, it is solved with pillars containing directional signs.
