This project is focusing on introducing the use of mobile phone with WAP applicability to assist users in finding location. As mobile based services become popular nowadays, there is a growing demand for WAP-based Mobile GIS which provide an easier ways to utilize the map information by requesting for WAP technology in phones. Corresponding to the problems found with the source of map information which are quite limited to the static maps and World Wide Web (WWW), this project propose a solution for finding location through map browsing capabilities using WAP. The main idea of this project is users can request from the server for the map site which they want to find for the exact location of certain places. As an introduction, this project will cater for the Malacca town area looking at the tourism factors found there. The server which is connected with the Mapserver application and Internet will reply back by providing the map site containing the map with some extended function_sucJL.as zooming. Various references and studies have been done regarding the successful WAPbased Mobile GIS applications implemented in foreign country that leads to the interest of doing this research on the implementation in this country. The scope also getting wide as the integration with PHP and Apache server is still new in GIS fields and lots of studies will be needed on it. Besides, the development and design terminology are also the crucial part and critical as it would reflect the whole WAP application development. Those issues related such as the user interface and design and deployment tools are the major point of studies which get attention from most ofWAP application developer.
