  1. 1. MOBILE GIS S. Chirasmayee 131870
  2. 2. Contents •What is mobile GIS •Who uses mobile GIS •Architecture of mobile GIS •Application of mobile GIS •Types of mobile GIS
  3. 3. WHAT IS MOBILE GIS • Mobile GIS is the technology to provide geographic information services in mobile computing environment • The term mobile GIS as an integrated software/hardware framework for the access of geospatial data and services through mobile devices via wireless or wire line networks. •Mobile systems allow GIS tools to be accessed wirelessly and utilised in field situations, away from the desktop, for a sustained period of time
  4. 4. WHO USES MOBILE GIS  Field Operations Workforce • Locate assets • Inspect assets  Public Safety Officials • First responder reporting • Emergency operations coordination and communication  Citizens, Planners and Executives • Volunteered Geographic Information/ • service requests • Executive Dashboard/ mobile Common Operating Picture
  5. 5. ARCHITECTURE OF MOBILE GIS The mobile GIS contains six components • 1. Positioning systems, e.g. satellite-based GPS • 2. Mobile GIS receivers • 3. Mobile GIS software's e.g ArcPad • 4. Data synchronization/wireless communication • components • 5. Geospatial data, and • 6. GIS content server.

  8. 8. ArcPad( by ESRI) • ESRI, as one of the leading companies in the GIS field in its palette of products offers mobile GIS solution targeting PocketPC platform. It is called ArcPad (ArcPad). • This is general type of mobile GIS solution with open architecture allowing easy customization and tailoring according to specific customer’s needs • It therefore offers a set of basic GIS functionalities and tools that are used to extend application with functionalities needed for specific usage scenarios.
  9. 9. ESRI bases its ArcPad on four basic technologies • • • • mobile computing device (PocketPC) basic set of spatial analysis and manipulation tools global positioning system (GPS) wireless network communication interface.
  10. 10. • Basic GIS functionality understandably supported by ArcPad is geographic maps visualization in the form of raster images. • ArcPad supports usage of all today widely used raster image formats, like JPEG, JPEG 2000, BMP. • Thematically different maps in the form of raster images can be grouped into layers • Apart from raster type, layers can also contain vector data. • Also, standard vector type data formats are supported, most importantly shapefile format • In order to support usage of ArcPad throughout the world majority of map projections are included.
  11. 11. Case study • “Integrated Mobile GIS and Wireless Image Servers for Environmental modeling and Management” developed at San Diego State University (San Diego, 2002). The project includes integrated GIS platform where in the field data collection must be performed using mobile GIS client platform. • Effectiveness of the developed system is tested in three different services: campus security, national park preservation service and sports events. • This project is based on modified client/server architecture. • Fieldwork personnel are using PocketPC device with customized ArcPad version installed.
  12. 12. • PocketPC is connected with external GPS device and therefore has constant access to user location information. • Considering wireless communications, campus grounds are covered with Wireless LAN and all client PocketPCs are equipped with WLAN adapters • Server side of this system includes typical set of servers and tools from ESRI including ArcIMS and ArcGIS.
  13. 13. • Demonstration use case shows the field unit receiving warning about fire reported at the specified site. Closest field unit is being notified. Using campus WLAN it is contacting central ArcIMS server and acquiring map of that part of the campus as well as blueprints of buildings endangered by fire. Central server contains also thematic data about estimated number of people in these building, evacuation plans and similar. Simultaneously, units on site can update fire reports with more detailed information and therefore shorten response time of other units enroute. The ArcPad application customized for this use and being used in this scenario is shown in figure
  14. 14. SUMMARY • With the progress of new mobile GIS technologies, many future applications will benefit from, and ultimately rely on mobile GIS. • Using Mobile GIS technology produce more productivity with less cost with real time update.
