agree on that, but the permanent internet connection in a rural area might
make it difficult to access the internet permanetly (coverage, price etc.).
So a mobile UMN application on the mobile used to view core datasets (may
incl. the creation of data), may download topomaps in a certain area (jsut
as raster) and the user is capable to navigate through the area and submits
modification in one post command to the WMS server.
I agree, that an html client is capabile to do the same, but requires a
permanent online connection to the server.
