A location-based service (LBS) is a software service for mobile device applications that relies on knowledge about the geographical location of the mobile device. These applications collect real-time geodata through various location tracking technologies.

How Location-based services are used?

Location-based service providers (LSP) use individuals’ location data to provide them with requested information. For example, they can offer details on the nearest ATM, restaurant, or retail store. These location data encompass three dimensions: personal, spatial, and temporal, indicating a user’s location at a specific time.

In geography, there are two ways to describe location:

  1. Relative Location: This refers to the position of something relative to another landmark. For instance, you might say you’re 50 miles west of Houston.
  2. Absolute Location: This describes a fixed position that never changes, regardless of your current location. It provides precise coordinates to pinpoint a location accurately.
