The MobileSocial framework allows information from the server to be displayed on mobile phones as well. Web page contents close to the user’s current position (located via GPS) can be viewed. The MobileSocial framework allows you to contact your friends thorough social networks.
The database found on the server is built up by and information collection is based on the crawler engine. The multithreading application is scanning the web and running in the background. It saves the URLs, the geographical addresses and the full content of web pages, then generates a large database wherein the web content is indexed according to these data. It also rechecks the web content from time to time and tracks the changes via version control.
Searches can be executed on the server via web from the saved database. The result is displayed through the ArcGIS Server. The user can view the whole list of results (e.g. for the whole country) or the pages can be filtered to provide only the important information for the user (e.g. restaurants, cinemas, clubs, schools, petrol stations etc.). The user can give their current position by a single click to get the close surrounding area results from the system. GISearch Appliance is capable of updating continuously, thus maximising the accuracy of search results and displaying relevant, up-to-date information.
