This paper discusses the design and implementation of a geocomputing platform for the development of Location-Based Services(LBS) focusing mobile mapping. During the analysis, design, and implementation of the geocomputing platform, an effective method was identified for the real-time processing of geographic information acquired by a camera attached to a Handheld Computers and Smartphone. This combines location information given by GPS with man's ability to recognize the location of objects and their geographical relationship to improve object mapping.
