4.0 out of 5 stars GIS to enable a mobile Web 10 April 2004
By W Boudville - Published on
The theme of this book is the integration and extension of current Geographic Information technology with other information infrastructures. The most important of which are those that support web operations.
The promise is the taking of the World Wide Web to its next stage - a mobile web. To some extent, phone companies have seen the first edge of this, with the latest cellphones that incorporate GIS to give the location of the user. But that is just a harbinger.
If a server on the web could access and use the locations of those who come to it via the web, then this can enable new types of commerce and interactions. Currently, most web servers know little more than the IP address of the person contacting them. In future, that may be seen as very limited.
The book revolves around explaining how this might come about.
