A central task in the development of context-aware applications is the modeling and management of complex context information. In this paper, we present the NexusEditor, which eases this task by providing a graphical user interface to design schemas for spatial context models, interactively create queries, send them to a server and visualize the results. One main contribution is to show how schema awareness can improve such a tool: the NexusEditor dynamically parses the underlying data model and provides additional syntactic checks, semantic checks, and short-cuts based on the schema information. Furthermore, the tool helps to design new schema definitions based on the existing ones, which is crucial for an iterative and user-centric development of context-aware applications. Finally, it provides interfaces to existing information spaces and visualization tools for spatial data like GoogleEarth.
