The Integration of Wireless Location Technology and GIS in the Logistics Information System and its Application
With the rapid development and integration of Mobile communications, Internet and GIS technology, as well as the diversity of market demand, the commercialization of wireless location business process was accelerated. With the development of logistics information system, the combination of wireless location technology and logistics are increasingly closed. In this paper we introduced several kinds of popular wireless positioning technology, analyzed many factors which the operator selection of these technologies need to considered, and then discussed the necessity of combing the wireless location technology with GIS technology, and provided the architecture of system integration. Finally, the paper summarized the integration system in logistics of some typical application.
