As a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) emerges as one of major vehicles to realize GIS, the concept of mobile GIS has recently come into existence. Developed as a navigation system, the mobile GIS could be more applicable to census operations. With the advantages of the mobile GIS, if the system would be adopted, it is highly expected for the creation of the optimal census-taking environment and management infrastructure. Moreover, the study on modifiable areal unit problem (MAUP) would be given an impetus since it is easy to produce statistics on different combinations of small areas with this system. This paper aims to introduce a case study of a mobile GIS loading GPS that is developed and applied to an area in Gangnam gu, Seoul, Korea.
