Free registration required

Executive Summary

Web-based geospatial information services are still in their infancy in the mobile computing context. However there are significant human benefits in developing advanced systems that can use highly complex datasets to perform highly sophisticated geographical analysis, for commercial as well as societal benefits. There remain some significant research challenges to make advanced mobile systems a reality of a type and sophistication of current lab-based GIS. It is clear that the Web will be the engine for such developments, but the human factors involved, the software architectures for the Web applications in the mobile client-server environment together with efficiency and security issues, all need further research and development.
