Although Location-based Services (LBSs) have been an issue in the field of mobile communications for many years, there exists neither a common definition nor a common terminology for them. For example, the terms location-based service, location-aware service, location-related service, and location service are often interchangeably used. One reason for this dilemma might lie in the fact that the character and appearance of such services have been determined by different communities, especially the telecommunications sector and the ubiquitous computing area.
