A Review of Wireless Technology for Geographical Information Systems
Pages : 180-184
In the recent years daily routine have new challenges and problems; such as the lack of time, disaster management and on-line management, which GIS can help to overcome. With ever increasing challenges in spatially-related managing and decision making applications, wired GIS cannot meet the demands of users for easy access to spatial data and spatial analysis. Wireless spatial data service is one of the fastest growing areas in the information technology. Most of mobile users tend to access location information via wireless network. Many efforts have been made to reach this goal, and lots of technologies have been introduced in wireless world for serving spatial information.This paper discusses the technology currently available for use in wireless environments, focusing on Geographic Information Systems.
