Geographical information is now becoming increasingly more present in our daily life. This poses new challenges to its efficient and timely delivery to potential end users who do not necessarily have the required skills to access or operate a GIS software package. The Internet offers a powerful medium for real-time delivery of geographical information and location-based services.
