Abstract. Successful land information management is an important issue for governments in regards to sustainable development. Reliable and comprehensive data about land and all related factors are essential for effective land policies. Various land related legal applications such as planning, taxation, property management, mortgage, and real estate investments require interoperable, extensive and realistic information about the land and real property. GIS provides greater insight into land by its capability to advance geographic analysis in different aspects. The statistical analysis capabilities of GIS increase the efficiency and accuracy of the evaluations related to land and real estate. Along with the developments of information and communication technologies, modern GIS technologies can handle large and complex data. Web-based and mobile GIS technologies provide the capability of operating and sharing local data and provide geographic analysis tools to users via the web. In this way, various mobile GIS applications can be developed in many different application areas. In this study, a mobile application titled as Smart Real Estate was developed for presenting urban real estate characteristics in different thematic groups by analysing data in different formats coming from different sources.
