The purpose of this research is to develop a mobile GIS to administer a HIV/AIDS survey to be used in east Africa to help with monitoring and evaluating current projects. The mobile GIS would supplement or replace a paper survey that has been in place for the past two years.
The research showed that using a mobile GIS as a tool for field data collection is rapidly advancing. The rapid technological advancements can be attributed to more powerful mobile GPS devices that are able to process and collect GIS data quickly and easily.
This field has advanced to where field workers can easily carry mobile GIS devices to field locations for data collection and validation tasks. With wireless communication capacity, users can perform real time data updates and exchanges between centralized servers (Tsou 2004).
