This book is based on a series of symposiums on Location Based Services and Telecartography that have been held since 2002 at the Vienna University of Technology, the Polytechnical University HongKong and Salzburg Research. The meetings themselves were a response to technological developments in miniaturizing devices for telecommunication, computing and display and an increased interest in both incorporating cartographic presentations on such mobile devices and developing services that are specific to a particular location. The broad variety of disciplines involved in this research and the differences in approaching the basic problems is probably typical of a developing field of interdisciplinary research. However, some main areas of research and development in the emerging area of LBS and Telecartography can now be identified. The contributions to this book are selected from the full papers of the 5th Symposium on LBS and TeleCartography and reflect the main areas of interest: positioning, modelling and awareness, visualisation and cartographic communication and application development. It follows the book "Location Based Services and TeleCartography" (Gartner et al 2007), which reflects a selection of papers of the first symposia.
