Example text

In addition to increasing the distribution of maps, the Internet also has the potential of changing the way spatial information is communicated to people. It is clear that maps will continue to evolve to take advantage of this new medium. 4 Mobile In Europe, the first generation of mobile telephones appeared in the mid 1970’s in Scandinavia and was based on analogue techniques. The second generation of mobile handheld devices brought digital transfer technologies as the "Global System for Mobile Communications" (GSM) and made the wireless phones a mass market phenomenon.

Telecommunication infrastructure (mobile network), positioning methods, mobile in- and output devices and multimedia cartographic information systems are prerequisites for developing applications, which incorporate the user’s position as a variable of an information system. Integrating geospatial information into such a system, normally cartographic presentation forms are involved. Thus, the resulting system can be called a "mapbased location based service" (LBS). 32 William Cartwright, Michael Peterson, and Georg Gartner Different levels of solutions for presenting information within mapbased LBS have developed:  Cartographic presentation forms without specific adaptations  Cartographic presentation forms adapted to specific requirements of screen display  New and adapted cartographic presentation forms  Multimedia add-ons, replacements and alternative presentation forms Rules and guidelines have been developed during the last years to adapt cartographic presentations to the specific requirements of screen displays (Neudeck 2001).

Later, Kraak and Driel (1997) have proposed the basic functionality of hypermaps. The web has become a widespread means for the dissemination of mapping products. The maps available through the web can be distinguished based on varying terms of interaction, with static maps incorporating no interaction at all. The dissemination of geographic data on the web in the form of maps is accompanied with special requirements for map design and a new paradigm has emerged, that of web mapping (Kraak and Brown 2001, Peterson 2003).
