Q-Map Application for Enrichment of a Mobile Directory Assistance Service
MetadataShow full item record
The project described in this paper involves designing and developing a mobile map application, called the Qatar Map (Q-Map), which supports a telephone directory assistance service that runs over the terrestrial cellular network. The application uses WAP Push technology for extending the features available for a conventional directory assistance service. The Q-Map enables the network agent to respond to the subscriber with supplementary information when requesting a telephone number for a business. In addition to the telephone number, the information also includes a web address (URL) through which the subscriber can access a Google map covering the business’s area and any marketing content (e.g., advertising) uploaded earlier by that business. This service is also offered on-line through the Internet. In this regard, the subscriber can access the Q-Map website using a web browser, via either a PC, or a mobile handset.
