Directory of nearest hospitals using mobile service
MetadataShow full item record
In Bangladesh we have five mobile telecommunication companies, among all only two of them have GPRS system and near future they will bring GPS system. This is why we want to develop a system that will work with GPS and help people to get information about nearest emergency hospitals. There are many directories available, which provide helpful information to the people. However, the major problem with these directories is that they are not user friendly. That is, although these directories might contain many necessary information but due to lack of proper organization, these directories tend to become confusing. As a result the ordinary people find it very tough to use them. Location searching has always been a problem to everyone. And when it comes to finding locations of hospitals in times of emergency, things become more complex. Thus, to make life a bit easier tried to develop a system that will help people to get their desired address/location of the nearest hospital via SMS (short message service).
