Urgent help needed to develop a mapping system (GPS)

I need to develop a software that will plot a location onto a map after receiving the coordinat (x,y,z) from a GPS system. I will need to develop it using Java. I have no idea of how to do it and I hope that there is someone that could give me some idea or maybe source code that can help me in doing this project. Thanks a lot....

    I'm going to recommend trying the java board, if you haven't already, as it's quite likely more active, and it's really a programming issue, and not a hardware interface issue once you know what the input is like and how to get it out of the device.

    :
    How is the reception done? Have you already got code that coverts the interface (be it RS232, USB, LPT) into x,y,z form? How large of x,y,z's do you need? Are ya mapping the entire planet into one database or like a floor plan of a house? Do you need it permenantly stored such as Hard Disk or temporarily, RAM? What scale is the GPS sending it's information in? Meters, Feet, Latitude and longitude and altitude?
    Or are ya wanting to go from GPS to HD (without the PC)? That would be cool eh.
    Also, how often would it take the x,y,z measurements from the GPS? Take a step, hit a button and record the data?

    Although I am not a Java person.
    I am asking because I have not acquired a GPS yet, but you have a similar idea to one I have had. I was actually interested in doing this for myself (mapping from GPS, and a sonar...), but in C++.
