TOWARDS LOCATION-BASED SERVICES STANDARDIZATION - An Application based on Mobility and Geo-location

El Kindi Rezig, Valérie Monfort

Abstract

Location based services (LBSs) have improved users’ life drastically because of their useful applications such as location-based advertising, vehicle tracking, mobile commerce… etc. However most LBS applications are provider-specific and can’t (generally) cohabit with other LBS applications from other providers, consequently, consumers have to use different platforms and applications in order to discover and interact with different LBS applications. In our paper, we present an infrastructure based on geo-location and Web services to promote the uniformity of the way LBS providers publish their services on one hand, and the way consumers discover and interact with the LBSs they look for on the other hand. Moreover the proposed infrastructure is context-aware and promotes dynamical services accessibility by offering consumers, as they are moving, the nearest services they are interested in.
