Abstract—This paper describes a Geographic Information System (GIS) for use in the Ubiquitous Consumer Wireless World (UCWW), whereby the consumers will be able to acquire geographic information adapted to the capabilities of their mobile terminals anytime-anywhere-anyhow. Third-party Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting service providers (3P-AAA-SPs) handle all authentication, authorization, accounting, charging and billing related issues between the consumers and GIS service providers. The UCWW-GIS architecture is proposed and explained. Sample signaling flows between the main entities involved in a typical UCWW-GIS service session are described.
Index Terms—Arc GIS tool, geographic information system (GIS), ubiquitous consumer wireless world (UCWW).
