Abstract

By definition tourists are mobile, that is they travel from one place to another, in their quest for experiences. Therefore, based on the fact that they are mobile and searching for information, it can be deduce that mobile assistance can greatly improve their quest. The initial stage of this research is an attempt to provide a true mobile GIS; one which is reachable by Java enabled cellular mobile phones with colour display and network capabilities. The objective is to provide reliable anytime, anywhere access to geographical information about Mauritius. A proposed software architecture for the presentation of graphical maps over mobile phones is being investigated and developed.
