Book Description

The book provides up-to-date information on Location-Based Services (LBSs), including WiFi fingerprinting, geo-crowdsouring, and location privacy as well as application areas such as LBSs for public health, indoor navigation, pedestrian navigation, and advertising. Highlights include discussions of Location-Based Social Networking (LBSN) and the latest developments in geospatial clouds and how they can be used. It takes a look into the future with coverage of emerging technologies that will shape the future generation of LBSs.

Carefully designed to cover a range of topics for readers at different levels and with different backgrounds, the book provides a balance of knowledge between LBS theories, technologies, and applications.
