English abstract:
Location Based Services (LBS) are information systems which determine the location of users through mobile devices and addresses to various location based needs of the users. Navigation applications are one of the most common areas where LBS applications are used. Most common applications are about car and pedestrian orientation. Navigation software produced today generally address to the navigation of cars. However, navigation needs of pedestrians are
different from those of drivers. Particularly, the usage of landmarks is vitally important in pedestrian navigation. In this
study, pedestrian navigation is focused on, and information will be provided by using of landmark orientation. Open Street Map data is used here, which is open to all users and mobile application developers. OSM also provides tools for developing pedestrian navigation software. An approach for landmark orientation is proposed and preliminary results are also given.
