A number of studies in the field of environmental psychology show that humans perceive and evaluate their surroundings affectively.
Some places are experienced as unsafe, while some others as attractive and interesting. Experiences from daily life show that many
of our daily behaviours and decision-making are often influenced by this kind of affective responses towards environments. Location
based services (LBS) are often designed to assist and support people´s behaviours and decision-making in space. In order to provide
services with high usefulness (usability and utility), LBS should consider these kinds of affective responses towards environments.
This paper reports on the results of a research project, which studies how people´s affective responses towards environments can be
modelled and acquired, as well as how LBS can benefit by considering these affective responses. As one of the most popular LBS
applications, mobile pedestrian navigation systems are used as an example for illustration.
