          Appeal No.  1998-0015                                                       
          Application No. 08/388,058                                                  


               Inasmuch as an explanation of the GIS system is not                    
          present in the Moore patent, and the examiner has not provided              
          such an explanation, we do not have any evidence in the record              
          before us that the GIS system in Moore (column 2, line 66                   
          through column 3, line 8; and column 23, lines 19 through 23)               
          uses a “graphical user interface” in the “linking of the                    
          geographic information to telephone numbers.”                               
               In summary, the 35 U.S.C.  102(e) rejection of claims                 
          1 through 8 and 20 through 31 is reversed because the examiner              
          has not presented a prima facie case of anticipation.                       
                                      DECISION                                        
               The decision of the examiner rejecting claims 1 through                
          8 and 20 through 31 under 35 U.S.C.  102(e) is reversed.                   
                                      REVERSED

                                                       )
