FIG. 3A illustrates a part of the contents of the point information of the map data stored in the database 5. That is, the database 5 stores, as map data, 2 data corresponding to each position coordinate of latitude and longitude.
Map information indicating roads, various buildings, intersections, and the like on a three-dimensional plane, point information for specifying a navigation image at a point serving as a target corresponding to the map information, and point information specified by the point information. And image information having many images.

In the map information, VICS
(Vehicle Information and
Information of each intersection is coded according to the Communication System (road traffic information communication system). As shown in FIG. 3A, information of a point serving as a target also corresponds to the code of this intersection. Has become.

That is, the point information is constituted by information of points that can be a target such as a building, a convenience store, an intersection, a fast food store, a family restaurant, a gas station, etc. One piece of information is the above-mentioned intersection. Code number corresponding to the code of
It is assumed that each information of the point name, the attribute, the position coordinates, the direction, the time zone, and the corresponding image number is composed of a plurality of sets of information as one set of information.

As the code number, if the attribute of the point is an intersection, the code of the intersection itself is set. If the attribute is other than that, codes of a plurality of intersections corresponding to the location are set.

The point name is the name of the point when it is specifically attached and displayed on the navigation image, and the attribute indicates the distinction between the building, the convenience store, the intersection, the fast food store, and the like.

The position coordinates are information on the latitude and longitude obtained by GPS, and the direction indicates from which direction the point P is viewed as an image as shown in FIG. 3 (2). .

The time zone is for determining an image to be provided at the time of performing the navigation service.
Here, for the sake of simplicity, only "day" and "night" are set.

The corresponding image number indicates the number of the image selected by each of the above information, and a navigation image of a corresponding point can be obtained by searching the above image information using the corresponding image number. It becomes.

In the figure, for example, "Nack Burger" which is a "fast food restaurant" facing a road between two intersections of code numbers "005" and "007" is "North latitude (N) xx ° xx"'Xx"xx""East longitude (E) yy ° y
When the point is viewed from the direction “7” to the time of “day” on the navigation guidance route, the number of the navigation image is “5E31−
3 ".

The navigation image of this number is CDMA
When displayed on the terminal 4, for example, a guide message such as “There is a fast food restaurant knack burger 300 m (from the point immediately before)” using the above-mentioned point information together with the navigation image. May be displayed together with characters on the display unit 21 or sound output from the speaker 16.

Next, the specific contents of the operation will be described with reference to FIGS.

FIG. 4 shows the contents of processing performed by the control unit 20 mainly in the CDMA terminal 4, and FIG. 5 shows the contents of processing performed in the server device 2.

First, on the CDMA terminal 4 side, after specifying the navigation mode by changing the mode (step T01), the latitude and longitude are input as the position information of the destination according to the guide message displayed on the display unit 21. (Step T02).

In this case, it is assumed that the position information of the departure place is automatically inputted by the GPS receiving section 19 and the input operation by the user of the CDMA terminal 4 is simplified.

When the input of the position information of the destination is completed, a start request of the navigation operation is transmitted to the server device 2 together with the position information of the departure place and the destination (step T03). Wait for the designated point to be sent (step T04).

The server device 2 always waits for a navigation operation start request from the CDMA terminal 4 to be sent. When it is determined that there is a request (step S01), the server device 2 sends the request together with the request. The calculation is performed by searching the map information in the database 5 based on the obtained position information of the departure place and the destination, and selecting and determining the shortest guidance route (step S02).

Next, based on the calculated guidance route, the point information shown in FIG. 3A is searched for, and a predetermined distance interval range, for example, an interval of 300 [m] to 500 [m] is used. The valid point information is read all at once (step S03).

As point information to be read at this time, information corresponding to a plurality of time zones with respect to the same point and the same direction is read together.

Thus, of the plurality of pieces of read-out point information, the first point in the guide route is selected by taking the time into consideration at that time, and the navigation image of the number designated by the selected point information is selected. The information is read from the image information and transmitted to the CDMA terminal 4 together with the position information of the point (step S04).

Thereafter, the server device 2 determines whether or not the CDMA terminal 4 has received a notification to end the navigation (step S05), or whether or not a notification to newly update the navigation operation to the next point has been received. By repeatedly determining (Step S06), these notices become C
It waits for the arrival from the DMA terminal 4.

In the CDMA terminal 4, when a navigation image relating to the first point is sent from the server device 2, it is determined in step T04, and the received navigation image is displayed on the display unit 21 (step T04).
05), it is determined whether or not the information of the current position obtained by the GPS receiving unit 19 matches the position information of the point transmitted together with the navigation image including a preset error (step T06). By repeatedly executing the processing, the user of the CDMA terminal 4 visually recognizes the designated point and waits until the user arrives there.

Then, when it is determined that the designated point has been reached, it is confirmed that the arrived point is not the destination (step T07), and the server is operated to receive the designation of the next point. A process of transmitting a point update notification to the device 2 is executed (step T0).
8) Return to the process from step T04 again and wait for reception of the navigation image of the next point.

In this case, the CDMA terminal 4 may notify the server device 2 of the arrival at the designated point by transmitting the position information of the point, or may transmit the position information. In place of the above, the transmission for notifying the update to the next point may be performed simply as described above.

When the server device 2 receives a new notification from the CDMA terminal 4 to update the navigation operation to the next point, the server device 2 determines this in step S06 and performs CDM.
After the content of the point to be instructed to the A terminal 4 is updated and set, the navigation image of the updated point is provided to the CDMA terminal 4 again in step S04.
The process from is repeatedly executed.

In this manner, the server apparatus 2 transmits a navigation image of a new point to the CDMA terminal 4 every time the CDMA terminal 4 receives a point update notification from the CDMA terminal 4, and the CDMA terminal 4 receives the navigation image. When the user visually recognizes the image and moves to that point, a process of automatically transmitting a point update notification is repeatedly executed.

When the CDMA terminal 4 finally arrives at the point of the designated navigation image, the CDMA terminal 4 sends a notification to the server device 2 indicating that the point is the destination and to end the navigation. (Step T09), and the night process is ended in FIG.

Upon receiving this notification, the server device 2 determines this in step S05, executes processing including erasure of all point information read out above (step S08), and then executes the next navigation operation again. The process returns to step S01 to wait for a start request.

As described above, the server device 2 continuously transmits the navigation image together with the guide message as the content for visually recognizing the target point until reaching the destination with respect to the CDMA terminal 4. The user of the CDMA terminal 4 can easily reach the final destination by sequentially moving while visually recognizing the target points according to the contents.

Therefore, even when a terminal having a limited display screen capacity is used, such as various portable telephones including the CDMA terminal 4, it is possible to reliably reach the destination. .

In particular, in the server device 2, even at the same point, the navigation images are different for “day” and “night”, and the actual images obtained at the time corresponding to a plurality of time zones are obtained. Since the image similar to the scenery is provided, it is possible to reliably recognize each point in response to the point-of-view changing situation depending on the time zone.

In the above embodiment, the antenna 18 and the GPS receiver 19 are incorporated as means for measuring the current position in the CDMA terminal 4. However, the means for measuring the current position is not limited to this. not,
For example, in the case of a macro cell type mobile telephone system in which the area handled by each base station is very small, such as PHS (PHS: second generation cordless telephone system), either the terminal side or the server apparatus side Also, at that time, the location where the terminal is located can be automatically specified from the identification information of the base station to which the terminal is wirelessly connected. It can be realized.

Further, at the departure point of the route guidance, as described above, an example in which the processing is simplified assuming that the current position at that time is automatically input is used, but a point which is not the current position is designated. Of course, a guidance route starting from that point may be obtained.

In addition, the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, but can be variously modified and implemented without departing from the gist thereof.

Furthermore, the above embodiments include inventions at various stages, and various inventions can be extracted by appropriately combining a plurality of disclosed constituent elements. For example, even if some components are deleted from all the components shown in the embodiments, at least one of the problems described in the column of the problem to be solved by the invention can be solved and the effects described in the column of the effect of the invention can be solved. In a case where at least one of the effects described above is obtained, a configuration in which this component is deleted can be extracted as an invention.
