This paper provides with an easy to understand, step-by-step approach to location determination and management - crucial knowledge for exploiting location as a value-added service enabler for mobile communications. It presents a model of location management of Mobile Station (MS) using Geographic Information System (GIS) in GSM (Global System Module) network. There are two techniques to find out the position of MS. One is hand set based technique and another is network based technique. To finding the MS position in hand set based traditionally GPS (Global Positioning System) is used. In this paper, the authors used network-based technique to locate the MS by successfully integrating Time of Arrival (TOA) with GIS.
