This book explains the principles of geo-information driven technology and services offered by LBS. Not only does it set the scene for LBS and the reasons for its advent, it explains the convergent technologies that have made LBS possible. It also provides a profile of the techniques available for locating the LBS user and how spatial queries are answered and offers an analysis of the various ways of communicating LBS (e.g., map, text, voice). Shedding light on the different approaches and uses of LBS in the U.S., Japan, and Europe, the book concludes with a discussion of ethics, privacy, and…mehr

This book explains the principles of geo-information driven technology and services offered by LBS. Not only does it set the scene for LBS and the reasons for its advent, it explains the convergent technologies that have made LBS possible. It also provides a profile of the techniques available for locating the LBS user and how spatial queries are answered and offers an analysis of the various ways of communicating LBS (e.g., map, text, voice). Shedding light on the different approaches and uses of LBS in the U.S., Japan, and Europe, the book concludes with a discussion of ethics, privacy, and legal issues in this area.
Location-Based Services (LBS) are the delivery of data and information services where the content of those services is tailored to the current location and context of a mobile user. This is a new and fast-growing technology sector incorporating GIS, wireless technologies, positioning systems and mobile human-computer interaction. Geo-Information (GI) Engineering is the design of dependably engineered solutions to society's use of geographical information and underpins applications such as LBS. These are brought together in this comprehensive text that takes the reader through from source data to product delivery. This book will appeal to professionals and researchers in the areas of GIS, mobile telecommunications services and LBS. It provides a comprehensive view and in-depth knowledge for academia and industry alike. It serves as essential reading and an excellent resource for final year undergraduate and postgraduate students in GIScience, Geography, Mobile Computing or Information Systems who wish to develop their understanding of LBS.
