Location Based Mobile Application Development

How its work? Location-based services use a Smartphone’s GPS data to track a person's location and based on that app will manipulate data on device or server and render data according to user location and provide some alerts and more.

Location-Based Application Development

Build Location Based Services Mobile App

Today we are living in personalization/customization era where contextual information matters more. Location of users/consumers plays the vital role in the creation of real contexts. With the advent of Global Positioning System (GPS), GIS (Geographical Information Systems), spatial & positioning technologies, Information & Communication Technologies (ICT), the Internet technologies (WLAN), and mobile + wearable technologies, the location-based services (LBS) become more relevant and useful in every strata of human life.
For the very reason, today we are witnessing a steep surge of LBS applications in the market and new doors of the opportunities are opening rapidly for all segments of the market including end-users, companies/industries, businesses, developers, vendors/manufacturers, and app stores.

What is LBS (Location-Based Services)?

The mobile devices, positioning technologies, and mobile networks together are capable of delivering the users, real-time, value adding information or services based on the current location of the users’ mobile devices. It all happen automatically without any effort from the users to provide the location details manually at all.
In simple words, LBS linked with location information, so it is location-Aware or in a broad sense, the Context-Aware services.

How LBS Works?

Location-based services (LBS) are working on location tracking concept. Fundamentally, in the Location Tracking, the location of the device/person/tagged object defined based on the mathematical calculations of trigonometry.
In simple term, it is trilateration or triangulation, and now the multilateration systems work. The triangulation calculates three different angles around the object while in multilateration, more than three.
Initially, Space Satellites used in the location tracking for military purposes. However, today we have an extensive list of location tracking technologies used for outdoor, indoor, and hybrid purposes.

Technologies Involved in LBS

Handset-Based Technologies
  • GPS:Through satellites and only effective for outdoor uses (Accuracy: 30-100m)
Cellular Network-Based Technologies
  • Cell-ID: Cell of Origin based on the ID of Base Transceiver Station (BTS) (Accuracy: 200-5000m)
  • Cell Tower Triangulation: Enhanced Cell ID based on multiple BTS tower calculations. Used methods are AOA (Angle of Arrival), TDOA (Time Difference of Arrival), TOA (Time of Arrival), and others. (Accuracy: 50-1000m)
Hybrid Technologies
  • A-GPS: Assisted GPS is the combination of GPS and GSM positioning systems for better outdoor and indoor positioning. (Accuracy: 20-30m)
Infrastructure-Based Technologies
  • Wi-Fi: Instead of mobile BTS, it uses Wi-Fi signals (Accuracy: 3-10m Indoor 20-30m Outdoor)
  • Bluetooth: Beacon, iBeacon, and other LEB chipsets use ultrasound Transmitting technologies to calculate signals (Accuracy: 3-10m)
  • RFID & NFC: Based on Radio Communication technologies it works only with proximity of the devices involved to transmit the data in highly secure and accurate manners (Accuracy: A few cm)
