Advances in GPS, personal locator technology, Internet and network technology, and the rapidly growing number of mobile personal devices are helping to drive the fast growth of mobile e-commerce, we refer to as m-commerce. A special case of m-commerce is enabled with location based services (LBS) where often the actual position of the terminal is used in the service provision. In this chapter, we concentrate on the analysis and design issues and techniques for the LBS. We give a brief introduction of LBS and its applications and present the most important user, system, and infrastructure requirements. We also present the architecture and database design issues in LBS systems and study the performance an LBS system and evaluate its properties.
