Point of Interest Service System

Executive Summary

We have developed a mobile service platform based on OpenStreetMap. The service provides Geo-marketing advertising and information content.

Basis for the Geo-marketing services are:

• OpenStreetMap

• Web Service for administrator

• Mobile Applications(iPhone, Java ME)

There are 4 different work areas in this project:

1. Backend/Server

• Web Services

• SMS Gateway (Kannel)

• Database

2. Admin Application

• Web Admin for backend (central admin of services, points of interests, and users)

• User Web Admin (admin user data, services, default position) Some users will connect through PC; others will connect via mobile internet

3. iPhone mobile client application

4. Java ME mobile client application

This application provides plan to establish a mobile service platform with geographical location called “POIs (Points-Of-Interests)”. This POI displays in correspondence to a user’s home-Location (which can be an ID or the actual GPS Data of the mobile phone). If GPS-Location is not available, then Home-Location is the ID.

This POI belongs to Services. User can book/subscribe service, which will be a collection of POIs. For example Hotels, Cinema, Bus/Railway etc. When the user will logged-in, according to his home location then it will display in Map as a marker.

Mobile User: Java ME Mobile user can create his/her account by sending SMS with zip-code to a certain number defined by Kannel (SMS Gateway). Then at the backend it will process the same and create a new user account with default setup and set the sender mobile number as its new account and send a reply SMS along with its first time logged in credentials.

PC/Internet User: This type of user can create directly by admin using admin application. For each account creation user will get notified by SMS and admin by mail.
