By Liqiu Meng, Alexander Zipf, Tumasch Reichenbacher

The improvement of instant telecommunication and ubiquitous computing te- nologies has resulted in a growing to be cellular inhabitants and dramatically replaced p- terns of operating and lifestyle. A tender and secure mobility is barely attainable whilst the cellular individual is well-informed of the happenings in his ambient en- ronments. Location-sensitive maps have proved a robust enhancement to what a cellular consumer can without delay understand from his ambient environments. in view that precedent days the map has been the favourite verbal exchange language of spatial infor- tion. it's much more the case for cellular functions the place brand-new maps should be wirelessly retrieved or generated in real-time. The upsurge of map-based s- vices on cellular units has raised a couple of new questions demanding the traditional computer-assisted cartography. Map-based cellular companies offers a modern assessment of analysis and improvement matters relating to the layout and using mobility-supporting maps. The booklet has been written for pro cartographers who're striving for - tending their theoretical, methodological and sensible wisdom to cellular m- making, for surveyors and geo-service prone eager about the improvement of clever location-based companies, for software program builders and cognitive scientists engaged in human-computer interplay, and for college students and lecturers in cart- raphy and geoinformation sciences. The e-book used to be initiated by way of the multidisciplinary workshop “Design of m- established cellular providers” in the body of the convention “Human and computing device 2003 – interplay at the circulation” held in Stuttgart, Germany, September 2003.
