English abstract:
Location recommendation is one of the most important components in many Location Based Services (LBS), especially in mobile guides. Currently, providing relevant location (e.g., Point of Interest, POI) recommendation is still very challenging. This paper aims to investigate how location histories can be used for making POI recommendation in LBS. A collaborative filtering-based approach is proposed, which consists of three steps: user profiling from location history, measuring user similarity, and making recommendations. With this, smart services like "after visiting..., other people similar to you often went to ..." can be provided in LBS.
