Special Issue Information

Recent years have witnessed rapid advances in location-based services (LBS) with the continuous evolvement of mobile devices and communication technologies. LBS have become more and more popular in not only citywide outdoor environments, but also shopping malls, museums, and many other indoor environments. They have been applied for emergency services, tourism services, intelligent transport services, gaming, assistive services, healthcare, etc.

This Special Issues aims to provide a general picture of recent research activities related to LBS. We invite original research contributions on all aspects of location-based services, and, particularly, encourage submissions focusing on the following themes (without being limited to):

•           Outdoor and indoor positioning
•           Smart environments and ambient spatial intelligence
•           LBS, crowdsourcing and volunteered geographic information (VGI)
•           Geotagged big data
•           Personalization and context-aware adaptation
•           Visualization techniques for LBS
•           Novel user interfaces and interaction techniques
•           Innovative LBS systems and applications
•           Wayfinding and navigation
•           Cyber-physical systems, Smart cities and intelligent transport systems
•           Mobile healthcare
•           Usability and Privacy
•           Legal and business aspects in LBS
•           Open source solutions and standards
