Researcher has studied location information because it become important to people that it plays a part in our live especially to unknown destination. They need to know at least two important information, which are the routes they are taking and the time needed to arrive to the destination to prevent losses of time and unwanted waiting for unnecessary events. Modern days in under technology offered smartphones as a technology that help users for their daily task, smartphones are highly integrated devices with basic mobile functions, which has many useful application such as high speed Internet surfing, media playing, photo taking and many more thus it can provide with location-aware services information. Location-aware services become popular because most location-aware services application applies GPS to acquire location data and location information used for navigation. The location information provide routes and traveling time information, basic information about surrounding area of the destination, weather forecast, currency converter, etc. The location information are developed from Geocoding programming and it can be applied to UKM campus application. Sometimes, students and visitors are facing difficulties when finding route in UKM campus, searching UKM campus information, updating latest activity held in UKM and tracking UKM‟s bus travelling time and location. There is needs to develop a solution that can resolve those problems. Based on those problem statements, the objective of project is to design and develop an interactive iPhone application called UKMy. This application will not be directly concerned with providing a feature rich application, but rather it will focus building a prototype of an application that can support UKM‟s students and visitors when they are exploring UKM. The application is developed with Geocoding techniques with GPS to facilitate tracking system based on location-aware services. The project will also determine the capabilities of Geocoding transmission on database using currently available technologies. In the project also, databases are created and implemented using database client SQLite and MySQL. User interface application for this app was developed by using Objective-C programming. There are several other programming languages used in this project such as PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript to develop database management system. The result from performance testing for this project is discussed in this report and a few recommendations is proposed for future work.
