Several initiatives have implemented collaborative
applications for mobile settings as diverse as hospital work,
wildlife, transportation, and museums. The changing nature of
mobile technology has resulted in a wide variety of applications.
We explored models, architectures, and applications developed in
the past 13 years to categorize the types of existing software and
extract a set of common core requirements that support mobile
collaboration independently of the current technology. This
paper provides an analysis of the domain of mobile collaborative
systems including a proposal division into several domains of use,
and a study of the types of systems that exist in each of them. In
this way, developers can analyze their scenario of development to
get an idea of the most important requirements that should be
considered for development.
