Editorial Reviews

It has been the very lack of geography in the Internet that has made it so quick to get around in, so a report on its discovery there would forebode slow times ahead. Fear not. Here, engineers and economists from companies around the world explain how to make digital location information available to software applications running on mobile devices, which are connected to the Internet with various wireless link-layer techniques. Location-aware, or location-based computing is allowing applications to sense where the device they are running on is in the geographical world, and to modify their settings, user interface, and functions accordingly.
