Some of the views on the development of the mobile spatial interaction (MSI) are discussed. MSI is highly raised by virtual- or augmented-reality techniques that enabling the continuous interplay between virtual and spatial information. It has traditionally focused on three main categories, such as wayfinding, access and creation of spatial data, and augmented reality. It is quickly evolved as a mean of supporting mobility in pedestrian, navigation, outdoor sports, and traveling. A common theme that is found in the MSI research is the ability to access digital information that has been attached to physical places called points of interest. It includes some other aspect also, such as the sense of space and of social interaction. The activities of the MSI are basically concerned with the socially motivated interaction forms of sharing and tagging. The major opportunity of the MSI is to make mobile Internet services useable, because of its interacting style.
