A mobile application framework for the geospatial web
In this paper we present an application framework that leverages geospatial content on the World Wide Web by enabling innovative modes of interaction and novel types of user interfaces on advanced mobile phones and PDAs. We discuss the current development steps involved in building mobile geospatial Web applications and derive three technological pre-requisites for our framework: spatial query operations based on visibility and field of view, a 2.5D environment model, and a presentationindependent data exchange format for geospatial query results. We propose the Local Visibility Model as a suitable XML-based candidate and present a prototype implementation.
