About Mobile Maps

Mobile maps provide information services that are accessible with mobile devices through mobile network by utilizing the location of the mobile device. GPS delivers the location information anywhere around the globe for outdoor environments. Different technologies such as Wi-Fi, WLAN modems, RFID tags, ultrasound, infrared, and BLE provides content information for indoor environments as GPS cannot operate in such environments. Location of a device is determined by a mechanism known as localization categorized based on user’s navigation, lifestyle, shopping, social networking, public transportation, utilities, and games. The various location-enabled mobile devices are smartphones, tablets, and devices fitted in vehicles. LBS generate information regarding ongoing local events, shopping, and location-based entertainment options. LBS have become a key component of small-business marketing strategies and monitoring systems.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The use of logistics and supply chain management 3D platforms and management software increases efficiency and minimizes cost. 3D visualization provides clarity of information about routes, warehouse utilization, and throughput. Software management provides information about transportation. Consumers tend to modify the transport route as well as the stock configuration until the performance is optimized.”

According to the report, GPS-enabled smartphones have gained widespread visibility in the last few years. While mobile devices were used as communication devices in recent years, the increasing functionalities and processing capabilities of smartphones and tablets allow present-day users to use their mobile devices to obtain real-time directions to nearby locations, weather forecasts, and traffic updates. All these GPS-based applications and devices are built on digital maps, which provide location information to end-users. Hence, smartphone manufacturers are developing partnerships with digital map providers to provide in-built digital maps in their devices. Mobile maps are being used extensively in various sectors, such as healthcare, transportation and logistics, oil and gas, defence, military, and others.

Further, the report states that some countries assume that digital maps in high-security zones may endanger national security, as they are exposed to the areas of terrorist attack. Hence, governments in many countries do not allow vendors to provide digital maps of areas that have high-security installations. In addition, some nations have compelled map providers to erase digital images of sensitive areas such as nuclear weapon sites, military bases, and border regions as well as the residences and offices of prominent individuals. For instance, the Chinese government does not allow many digital map content providers to conduct aerial surveys in China.
