Blog Based Personal LBS
One of the problems in the current commercial LBS (Location-based Service) is weak functionality for users to use their own generated content on the LBS. This paper proposes a new framework of Personal LBS which solves the problem by using blog as both a description language for the extension and a simple CMS (Content Management System). A blog entry is a kind of story. Better a story is, more easily and efficiently readers can understand it. One of the most important LBS applications is a location-based guided tour which can be created as geotagged stories on a blog. The framework allows the geotagged stories to be moved from a blog to a local software application on mobile devices as story packages for publishing, reproducing and exchanging on LBS. We also discuss the capability and importance of personal LBS for location-based communication among ourselves, families, friends, groups and all users beyond time.
