In this chapter map-based location based services (LBS) are analyzed by describing the basic elements (positioning, information modelling and presentation, the user and questions of adaptation), the state of the art of current systems and the main fields of research. Selected results of experiences in terms of fundamental research (potential of cartographic presentations forms), in positioning (active landmarks), modelling and visualization (guiding and navigation for pedestrians) are given.
