Abstract

This study proposes a Mixed-Map based on a mobile device. The proposed mobile Mixed-Map is designed to download 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional data provided by Google maps and Yahoo maps. It then controls the map data independently. A variety of applications can be implemented. Transferring geographical data from a web geographical information system can improve efficiency by reducing response time. It adopts a tile cache method to provide continuous service when a wireless internet cannot be connected. As an example of the proposed system, we implemented a real-time location tracking system application between mobile devices that obtains current location and GPS information in real-time using GPS. The Mixed-Map can be easily applied to different technologies as the application does not simply rely on API in the ubiquitous environment. The study develops and suggests basic technologies necessary for a ubiquitous geographic information system.
