This chapter covers the main influences for the book, especially the different domains, which made serious contributions to indoor location-based services. Examples are geology and geographic information systems, data mining and especially time series data mining, context awareness and activity recognition, robotics, computer vision, mobile computing, and ubiquitous computing. Furthermore, a quick overview of application domains of indoor location-based services is given. These examples intend to describe the various requirements, which motivate different algorithms and systems covered in the main part of the book. Finally, the structure of the book gets explained.
