An automated, fully transportable mapping system utilizes position information gathered from a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) capture program to create new maps or annotate existing maps contained in a Geographic Information System (GIS) database in real time. In addition, the present invention displays position information captured by GPS in real-time, enabling users to track the path on which they are travelling. Attributes related to the position information may also be entered in real time, and are stored in a file for subsequent inclusion in a GIS database.
