About this book

This book provides for the first time a general overview of research activities related to location and map-based services. These activities have emerged over the last years, especially around issues of positioning, spatial modelling, cartographic communication as well as in the fields of ubiquitious cartography, geo-pervasive services, user-centered modelling and geo-wiki activities. The innovative and contemporary character of these topics has lead to a great variety of interdisciplinary contributions, from academia to business, from computer science to geodesy. Topics cover an enormous range with heterogenous relationships to the main book issues. Whilst contemporary cartography aims at looking at new and efficient ways for communicating spatial information the development and availability of technologies like mobile networking, mobile devices or short-range sensors lead to interesting new possibilities for achieving this aim. By trying to make use of available technologies, cartography and a variety of related disciplines look specifically at user-centered and conte- aware system development, as well as new forms of supporting wayfinding and navigation systems. Contributions are provided in five main sections and they cover all of these aspects and give a picture of the new and expanding field of Location Based Services and TeleCartography.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book provides, in an easy and an accessible fashion, a general overview of the research activities in different LBS elements in addition to their applications. … This is an ideal book for anyone who wants to learn about LBS, and for practitioners and researchers who are facing the numerous technological challenges raised by location-based services. … this book provides an excellent state-of-the-art overview that will remain relevant for years to come." (Naser El-Sheimy, Geomatica, Vol. 61 (3), 2007)
