Recent developments of mobile Internet and wireless technologies bring new opportunities and challenges to GIS research and applications. In this paper, we propose a new framework for accessing and integrating distributed geographical information by using mobile agent and GML technologies, in which mobile agents are used to overcome the limitations of traditional distributed computing paradigms in (mobile) Internet context, and GML is used to solve the heterogeneities of various GIS sources. A prototype is implemented, which validates the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed framework.
