Mobile applications must be much smarter than desktop web applications. Those applications need to know user's location, surroundings, and provide directions on how to get there. Developers face many challenges, including how to pinpoint the user's location, how to retrieve relevant spatial data from map databases that are often 20 Gigabytes in size, and how to support multiple clients. The mobility provided by the proliferation of wireless devices, such as Palm Pilots and onboard navigation systems presents a new class of opportunities and problems for application developers. KEY TOPICS: This book provides an end-to-end solution guide to understand the issues in location-based services and build solutions that will sell. Complete with software and industry case studies, this book is an essential companion to anyone wanting to build the next killer application. The more than one million auto-based telematics terminals that have been installed by year-end 2001 are ample testimony of the opportunities and attractiveness of the mobile location services market. This large and growing installed base of subscribers also provides multiple implementation examples, which are incorporated into the text for the benefit of those readers developing new mobile location applications. MARKET: Application Developers, System Engineers, Project Managers, Technical Marketers are all candidates to purchase this book.
