The development of GIS has been highly influenced by the progress of Information Technology. Theemerging usage of mobile technology and thrust in wireless communications leads to a new breed of GISystems. Realizing the increased usage of mobiles, wireless devices like Palmtops, PDAs, and smart cellular phones the GIS industry giants are shifting the paradigm towards a Mobile GIS. Mobile GIS refers to the use of GIS through mobile and wireless devices. This multidimensional research extends the idea of Mobile GIS by development of a robust and extensible Internet GIServices that provides location based services. A Location based Geographic Information System (LBS)- "Smart GIS" is developed in this design research that provides sumptuous network services to mobile users in a distributed computing environment.
